This product is the best in its category of Staunton chess sets.

Board: the board is large and suitable for a serious game. the wood is excellent and the squares have the right finish as well. the folding board has velvet bottom and you cannot notice any line in the middle after the board is opened for playing. the corners of the board are well made as well. The board indeed is heavy and very durable.

Pieces:
this is the best part of the set. all the chess pieces have a proper finish.
1. Pawns are very well made and are of appropriate size.
2. bishop has a proper distinctive cut in the top and it is very smoothly cut without leaving any marks etc.
3. Knight is most beautiful piece, it has eyes as well as nostrils. the ears are distinctive and hairs are carved in the head as well.

all the pieces are made from SINGLE wood piece so you wont find any joints, glue marks etc, the polish of the pieces is very good and durable.

Draughts:
some people were not happy with the plain draught pieces but i liked the pieces, they have the natural wooden rings and they are of suitable size as that of the square. hence while playing, you will be able to actually SEE which square is there below the draught piece.

Instruction booklet is included in this pack.

i will rate this product as 5stars out of 5 and it is a must for any chessplayer.
I do have one fancy chess board but this chess set is awesome!

Fantastic quality wooden board and draughts and chess pieces. Would definately recommend for a good qulaity chess set. Good value for money. Bought this for my son for Christmas. It is his first chess set and I wanted something he could keep without spending too much. I am very happy with my choice, would recommend.

The board and chessmen are well made and of good quality whilst the draughts pieces are just discs of wood badly made and with no pattern on either side, most disappointing when compared to the chessmen. Otherwise I suppose reasonable value for money.

A lovely chess set which surpassed any I could see in the usual high street shops at about the same price and style. Nice big board and well carved chess pieces. A very convenient present for my son in law this Christmas, just what he wanted.

Bought this for my son in law. It is a really good sized board and solid too. The pieces are all of really good quality. Very good value for the money. It was used for a good few games over the chritmas period. Well worth buying.

really nice chess set that makes it a pleasure to play. All pieces are solid wood, packages away nicely in the box and even has a little velvet bag for the pieces.

A good set but the delivery charge because of our location was a bit steep.
