Lightening fast response to order with arrival in time for Christmas. Board and pieces are first rate. Storage box is great.
I bought this for my son and when it arrived it did not disappoint. The quality of this set is very nice and the pieces are weighted very well.
It is just as pictured. A very lovely gift for a young chess enthusiast's graduation. The box is even nicer than expected.
Great product at a great price! This was the perfect gift for my chess enthusiast!
