Customer Review

on 28 October 2009
My 6 and 5 year old were keen to learn chess and I wanted to get a good-sized and fairly decent wooden set for them without spending loads of money in case they didn't enjoy it. Reasonably priced wooden sets are pretty hard to find. I'm very happy with this one for the price. The pieces are a bit lighter than I would like, too easily knocked over, but they are well shaped and easily distinguishable which is the main important thing for learning. The board itself (other than a completely pointless labelling of rows and columns with letters and numbers) is great. Both board and pieces are a good size for both adults and children, and moving a piece has a good "feel" from the felt base of the pieces on the board. I think the feel of movement is very important to learning and enjoying chess, so if you after a budget set, this one fits the bill very well.
