I have been looking for a nice chess set for my 13-inch chess board for a long time, now the 2.75 german night Staunton chess set is so perfect for it and I have nothing to complain.
Great pieces to use everyday
I wish that it provided 2 queens/side. I didn't notice that it didn't when I ordered it. Looks good on my board, which has 1 9/16" squares. Good weight, and the workmanship is very nice.
Very nice prices. I thought it came with the paper storage box...either way, I recommend for first time buyer. Been playing with my son. Crasftship is good.
I'm a very casual chess player so I have never really bought chess pieces like these let alone a pricey chess set. So these chess pieces is by far the most expensive chess equipment i have owned even though these pieces are the cheapest one here on chessstore. When i held them, my word... I was like a kid again, marveling the workmanship of these pieces. I was gleefully delighted. The weight, oh my, i have never used or held weighted chess pieces before so I was kinda overwhelmed. But it is nicely weighted though. Kinda like it gives you one those premium feeling. Overall I am glad that I bought these chess pieces.
The pieces were delivered on time and in good shape. They are very nice pieces for the money. Only con is I wish they had a bit more weight in the bases
I like the chess pieces very much. The wood is beautiful and they are weighted very nicely. Would recommend to anyone starting off.
These pieces are great; they weigh just right and the detail is far better when you actually have them in person than how they appear on the website. Totally worth the price!
