This is overall a superb chess set, full size.

The figures are well balanced and weighted, with very few noticeable imperfections. The small visible ones are because of the laquer not drying properly or small dents in the wood from production. Nothing critical, I have seen in the past at other sets horrible pieces with the laquer given in excess and every piece not staying straight on the table. Not the case with this set, the pieces have a high quality cloth/baize at the bottom, almost 1mm thick, which makes the pieces silent and soft at movements, while also staying straight and balanced.
I have attached a few pictures with them.

The board has perfect colour, not too dark, not too light (it's actually a bit more towards reddish than in the product picture), perfect to see clearly the pieces. It has good markings, and the lack of any style of lines (some boards are either very dark, or they use pyrography beveled lines to "enhance" its looks) between squares, makes it ideal for me. The black pieces, being darker than the black squares is also an important thing which I like at this product. At chess imho it's important to see the board easily (and with this board you surely can), not to be confused by strange pieces design, or same shade black on black design, so kudos for that.

The only dissatisfaction I have, is that while unpacking the box, the pieces were covered with green dust probably from the assembly line, in high quantity. Take a look at the attached picture for clarity. Not something you can't overcome, but it took me like 20 minutes to blow dust out of each and clean them with a moist napkin, then giving them a bit of shine. Something you would expect not to do at one of the most expensive chess sets on Amazon.

The product and customer service are excellent. The set arrived within 2 days which was sooner than expected. There was a small tear in the inner lining housing the pieces, I emailed and the company promptly sent a replacement.

------------- Original naive review--------

Nice Chess set, large size so easy to move pieces around and see what's going one. Knocked a star off for flimsy catches, the inner felt lining for pieces felt a bit plasticky, it could do with a some kind of cover or bag for when closed up so to prevent scratches in storage (the cardboard box won't last and is ugly) plus the pieces could be weightier.

I would have expected a little bit more in the way of little details like that for the price. I realise it's not expensive as chess sets go but my mate bought one which wasn't much different quality wise for 20 quid, although it was smaller. I guess you're paying for the size of the board and the pieces here.

Other than that a great set.

------------ The new review based on knowledge I wish I had two weeks ago! --------------

Update 2 weeks later - I'm feeling quite foolish about my earlier review of this set as I was clearly incredibly over forgiving of its faults. Looking back at my original comments I can see I've essentially listed features that I felt were cheap but somehow concluded that it was a great set basically on the grounds that it looked nice from a distance. I just assumed that this is how chess sets and pricing work. I was surprised by the quality when it was inspected closely but on the whole it is definitely attractive from afar. I'm happy to admit I've been more than a bit naive about chess sets and my initial impression was that this looked nice (from a distance) and that was all I could expect from a board at this price. Especially with the huge reduction quoted, I felt my expectations must be way out of line with the reality of dealing with quality chess sets.

Though we are asked to rate this chess set as a toy and how much fun it is, is hard to do, as chess is not really a fun thing.

When my son told me his son was interested in the game of chess and wanted to learn, my first thought (as a chess player for some 70 years) was that he will be bought one of those silly star wars or similar chess sets, or metal or glass things, that no self respecting chess player would be seen dead with!

So I immediately ordered a Staunton, that is accepted world-wide. Though I have never used a folding chess board, I find this would be more suitable, especially has it actually holds the chess pieces inside.

The board seems robust enough and the pieces are wood, weighted and with felt. The king is a normal three inches odd height, so all in all should be most satisfactory. If he plays at a club or with friends at least he has the proper set.

Excellent chess set, completely as described. It's a good size with solid weighted pieces. Would be nice to have a cloth cover for storage but can easily source on of those. Perfect size for the average dining table.

The chess board had several minor defects. (a) One of the hinges is not aligned properly so the 2 sides of the board dont match perfectly which is an extremely annoying thing while playing (b) The edges of the board had scratch marks. The place inside to keep the pieces was of a poor material and cracked in 2 places.

I would have returned the set but for the fact that my daughter was traveling and needed to take a tournament sized board with her.
