As a regular chess computer player, I bought this exclusive - write it down - "Made in England" chess set of the funny 'Celtic' Isle of Lewis Chessmen. Historians date these strange figures in the 12 th century and the originals are probably of scandinavian origin. Celtic or Scandinavian, who cares, this chess set has something that classic Staunton chess sets do not have, something historic/cultural, something special; The figures and chess board are very well made. Board in shape of Celtic cross, playing field is an imitation of a historic stone floor. Just great.
Found a business card of the Regency Chess Company in the very well packed, brand new box. Showed the chess set to a few members of my family who do not even play chess. Immediately had to order an extra 2 sets. So, that proves that I'm not the only one to be convinced of the quality of this product for a quite affordable price.
Amazon fullfiled its packaging duty perfectly, as usual.

The Chess Set looks beautiful on the coffee table and everyone that comes over comments on it - but the biggest plus about the chess set is my two teenage kids who spend all their free time on their computers and devices with headphones in their ears, now get their friends when they come over to play chess with them!!! as they all think the pieces are so lovely and it makes playing the game far more enjoyable - it's a win win

While a beautiful, though expensive, ornament, this is not much good as a functioning chess set. The grid is too small for my 10-year old daughters to play on, they topple the pieces over all the time, and some of the bases of the pieces are uneven. Beautiful-looking but I'll have to buy another chess set.

I saw this set and thought it looked great.

The set is good quality but is too small in my opinion which will make it difficult to play.

The pieces are very close together on the board which means any clumsy movements will send them scuttling all over the place. They are moulded plastic and nice to look at and hold. However, where the material has dried the base has formed a concave depression which doesn't make much contact with the board surface. If the board is jogged I think the pieces will be skidding about on the board.

It's more of an ornamental set for me, or maybe I'm just clumsy!

The chess board is only 9 inches (add euphamism here....) which is smaller than i was expecting but the set is made from heavy duty materials and looks great. Pieces are easily lost as can't fasten the set together during transit.

Smaller than I realised, quality alittle dissapointing, not really worth the money. Would of liked it to be bigger as more ornamental than playable.

Bought this for a birthday present for my partner, as yet not given to him. I was a little disappointed by the chess men, but all in all well packaged and reasonably priced.
