The reason I purchased this set was to have something handy to take to work or weekend tourneys, so I can study my books on the move and make moves in my postal correspondence games (yes people still do that!) - I must say it suits this purpose admirably.

The board and pieces are extremely well made, and I especially like the contrast of the light and dark squares - the board also has co-ordinates as you will see from the picture, which always comes in handy when using the set to play out positions in books.

I had settled on a cheaper model, and bought this half on impulse, but I'm extremely glad I did - I can see the set is going to be a companion for life, it's portable and more importantly usable - it's the first fold-up set I've had, which I am able to concentrate on for long periods of time - usually they are too small and the pieces lack definition making you unable to tell Bishops from Pawns after 5 minutes!

Excellent item and doesn't take up much space. I bought this for use in our mobile home on rainy days etc., but it actually comes out in the sun too. Easy and light to transport and then to pack away again. Lovely item, well worth the purchase.

Well packed and reasonably well made considering the price. Only real problem is that it is difficult to distinguish some of the pieces from each other when playing. A good starter set but for serious playing I would suggest better quality pieces.

My son decided to play Chess and asked me to buy one to practice at home. It appeared that it will be good quality product but after few days of use it was obvious that it was not worth of money I paid. When we tried to close it its lock came out. I had to fix it and it only happened after few days of play.

I ordered this item as a gift for a friend. I was impressed by the look of it on the pictures but was very disappointed when it arrived. The A,B,C and 1,2,3 et al are all in white paint - it looks dreadful and makes the whole set look bad. Seems a really poor cutting of corners on what is essentially a discreet part of the game - the cheap white letters stand out awfully and bring the whole look of the set down considerably - making it appear rather on the cheap side. I am really disappointed and will not be giving it as a gift but returning it for a full refund. If you like a quality item - this is not it.

I bought this for my nephew who had just started playing chess at school. It fit the bill because it is robust, folds away, is numbered so that he can learn the moves and is small enough to fit into his schoolbag. The added bonus is that he really likes it.

Bought the set for my 5yr old, he likes it and is proud of it. The base of the pieces have velvet covering, so the pieces slide smoothly across the board.
