on 2 May 2015
I bought this as a present for someone who wants to use it to help with chess problems - as found in The Times puzzle pages. It is a really cute set with pegs to hold the pieces and the wood is nicely finished on the box. As a previous reviewer had already said, the pieces themselves are a little rougher, but in such small items I wouldn't expect anything else, especially at the price. Anyway, you could always give them a rub with sandpaper or customise them with little dots of nail varnish if they need a bit more definition (King from Queen, say) My friend loved his gift and that is the best part. I would recommend.
