Extremely well made for the price, maybe not one for the experts?,

This review is from: Solitaire Chess Game (Toy)
Extremely well made and a good size make this exceptional value for money. Some have commented that it is not as portable as conventional travel sets, which it isn't. But worth the effort and perfect with the children when sitting around the table in a hotel bar or in the tent, if not for in the car. I think it would be great to help beginners learn the moves and to think about planning moves ahead, something I never did and remained at best a very average player. The increase in the level of difficulty is overcome, at least in my case so far having just reached the start of the advanced series, by identifying the single piece that will become isolated and concentrating on what can take it at and so determining the opening move, and the rest falling in to place. I am not sure that particular skill is applicable in a proper game of chess, or how challenging or entertaining the expert challenges would be to a good chess player. For me, as a long lapsed player of notable mediocrity, it is fun and highly recommended.
