Just received them yesterday
Had guests over for a party and had several players comment on how nice the pieces were.
I was pleasantly surprised how attractive they were.
Most plastic trinkets are injection molded , and have a seam where the two bits of the mold meet. The chess pieces have all been polished or buffed to remove this “seam”
Just another detai” to quality which is appreciated
My only regret is that I purchased the chess piece storage box for $5.95..
It’s just a plain cardboard box with the chess store logo... I would forgo that purchase in retrospect.
Overall. Great purchase . Very satisfied. Great value.
The set has very good balance and is plenty heavy. The queen is sharp but that's not a huge deal. The pieces had a little flashing (mark-off) from the die marks and are not nearly as polished looking as the photos. The black pawns especially were a little dull looking. Had I paid full-price ($30), I would be dipleased but for $20 -- it's a fair deal,
I wanted a classic looking Staunton style set that had great looking knights & chunky rooks. This set delivers in spades on the perfect design of the pieces. The bases are very wide and as such make tipping them over nigh impossible without genuine effort. With triple weighting, they have a very nice heft when handling them adding a very tactile, quality feel to the overall game play. I have a very expensive Italian-made brass Persian set which I love, and have used for thirty years, but honestly it doesn't play any better, in fact probably not as satisfying to play with as they aren't nearly as topple proof as this conqueror set. This is the best money I've spent on chess sets yet...and i really wasn't much! fwiw, I use these on a vinyl 20x20 with 2.25" squares and these work very well with it. However, I'm inclined to think they'd be even happier on a 2.375" square with those wide bases.
I am very impressed with the quality, the look, the feel and playability of these classic looking pieces. To my eye, these would be the model of what the Staunton design should look like. A nice chunky weighty rook with wide base, classic bishop shape, a knight without any of the weird-looking-knight-syndrome that so many sets have. Just a excellent looking detailed stallion with laid-back ears. The queen with her pointy crown and king with his majestic cross both with VERY wide bases...perfection. With their wide base and weighty bottoms they are nearly impossible to knock over without intentional effort. Even then they are hard to topple. On a 2.25" square they work well, 2.375" would be even better IMHO with these extra wide bases. Compared to non weighted hollow sets these are a dream to play. I actually like the way these play better than my Per$ian Bra$$ Italfama set because of the lower center of gravity and topple proof nature of the nearly twice as wide bases. As for customer service, fantastic! I had a couple pieces with mfg. marks and they sent me replacement pieces with no questions asked. FANTASTIC! Thanks!
The chess pieces are a lot heavier than I thought, and. I am very pleased. I bought them to play out doors and it’s good that it’s hard for them to blow away...
Triple weighted pieces are the best for navigating pieces around the board. For the competitive chess player look no further this set is it!
Excellent design and quality for an affordable price. It's a nice size set with good weighting! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone needing a great tournament set!
Nice size. Good heft. I like the camel color, as bright white pieces are annoying to me.
These are Excellent Staunton Chess Pieces. The height of the King, the hefty weight of the pieces and the design of the Knights, are all very impressive for such a, more than reasonable, price. I highly recommend The Conqueror Staunton Chess pieces for chess experts and novices, alike. This is a great deal for the money!
