The game is very well wrapped. It arrived to my place in Montreal Canada intact.
The pieces and the board are very well crafted, flawless. A work of art. Not only years of fun ahead of me, but also a nice decoration for the rec room.
I definitely recommend that chess set, if you are willing to invest a little money in your passion. It worth every dollars.
Thank you VERY much The Chess Store...
