Not Like In The Picture!, 13 July 2007

I was quite disappointed when I got this set because it does not look like the one in the picture. I wanted a nice wooden chess set for a beginner, but the craftsmanship on this was quite bad as the two halves of the board don't even line up very well. Another thing is that the set is actually a compact one, not even average size, so it would be nice to let customers know.
Not very happy with this purchase and I'll probably give it away to one of my neices/nephews and go to a chess retailer - where I can actually see it - to get one as these lot have put me off shopping for this sort of thing online!
