    Staunton Chess Set

    Posted by Billy on 2nd Jan 2024

    Great set. Very nice craftsmanship and weight. Pieces fit great on my 1.5” squares board. Comes with an extra queen on both sides. My only issue is the shipping tracking, which requires an app download. It was really well packaged when it showed up. 5 stars!

    Really nice and looks great on the chess board! Love the wood but, I did receive 2 queens in the set. That's ok...worth having extra pieces. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Nice little set of pieces.

    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.

    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
