This chess and draughts set is excellent value for money. The pieces are kept in drawers either side of the charming wooden box/board. The pieces are robust and well proportioned and the board is a convenient size to be stored away neatly.

There are better chess sets but they cost a lot more. This one is well made and very good value. Reccommended.

The chess pieces are a comfortable, workable size. They are varnished wood, and look good, and they have thin, felt pads on the bottom of each piece.
There is also a felt pad on each of the four corners of the wooden base.
The board is almost 12inches x 12inches, but there is a small margin around, which means the playing area is only 10inches x 10inches. This makes for quite a compact game when all the chess pieces are on the board.
The drawers are handy for storing the pieces, but they slip out quite easily when transporting the board around. I am going to fit a tiny catch onto each drawer, to hold the drawer in place.
On the set I`ve bought, one of the drawers is a snug fit, but the other drawer is not quite flush.
We can live with that though.
The set also contains draught pieces, and instructions for playing.

The word "deluxe" is slightly misleading, as the quality is not that great; one corner was damanged in the item I received, but the item was sealed so it felt like the manufacturing thought it was OK with have the veneer chipped off. Also, the colour of the drawers did not match the box, nor did they match each other. The pieces are very roughly carved, and not "deluxe" in feel. I ended up returning the item, and am sorry I wasted the time. Have since found a "deluxe" version, which is of course "deluxe price". So I guess the lesson I've learned is that there was not way you could get a really nice item for £23.

Purchased as gift for my grandson - he likes it a lot and with the draughts as well was good value. Arrived in a couple of days well packaged - despite the snow!

Bought this for an 8 year old avid chess fan.

The board is of good construction and the drawers are ideal for holding all the chess/draughts pieces.

Very happy with this purchase.

My 8 year old son received this set for Christmas and is very pleased with it. It is an excellent starter set (includes drafts too) but would be just as good for a more experienced player. The board has drawers in the side where the pieces can be stored.

Good wooden chess and draughts set. It's nice having one self-contained unit to cover both games, and I like the fact it's made of wood. It's not small, but fits ok on the shelf and would be ok in the car- although I'll probably buy a magnetic set for traveling.

An excellent chess set. Yes the board is compact but perfectly serviceable and it makes for a neat, practical, unit. The wooden construction is attractive and the draws work well keeping everything together. Portable, functional and practical - no complaints.
