This chess set package includes our German Staunton Chess Set in golden rosewood and boxwood matched with our Standard Walnut and Maple Chess Board. Sometimes simple is best and that's true of our German Knight Staunton chess set with its simple but attractive design. Unencumbered by fine detail, the pieces will stand up to the rigor of everyday play and it's an especially good chess set for blitz. Pieces have green billiard cloth pads for a soft feel on the chess board and are weighted for stability. The golden rosewood and boxwood are hand polished to a beautiful sheen. More chess games have been played with a German Knight than any other chess set in the world and it continues to be our most popular chess set.

This is an outstanding chess board and set of chessmen. I'm very glad I chose it. Extremely high quality. Should last a lifetime. Pieces are nicely weighted and slide smoothly across the board. A pleasure to play on. The pieces and board also look nice. A beautiful set.Unknown

Great Christmas Present!
Thank you so much; the shipping was fast(late for christmas, that was my fault though), and the board and pieces look great; just as the pics show. The board is perfect (no marks or anything), and you packaged it really well. It was just left outside our door all day while we were gone which I wasn't thrilled about; I believe I left an email and I might have left my phone number too, so I would have preferred that I was contacted if noone was home at time of delivery. I came home from work and didn't see it set on a chair off to the sidea on our deck, and my boyfriend (whose gift it was) came home from work after me, saw it, and walked in the door with it and read on the box what it was and everything so the element of surprise was kind of ruined. BUT- it looks great and thank you so much. You never know with online stuff sometimes so I was really happy with it overall : )Unknown
