A good start to the world of Chess
on 28 September 2011
I bought this as my daughter started to show an interest in the game of chess.
This entire set is made of a good quality wood, the board being strong enough for the job and painted so that it will last for a long while, even when the pieces are scraped over the squares.
The pieces themselves are 'carved' nicely, showing each one as it should be without being too fancy. They are nice and light yet manage to stay upright when playing, (unless i lose, then they somehow manage to end up on the other side of the room..??? how i don't know???).
In all, a great start in the introduction of chess
