Our Guardian plastic chess set is distinguished by its unique robot looking knight - players of all ages love it! The other pieces are traditional Staunton and heavily weighted with an extra wide base for exceptional stability on the chess board. The plastic has a matte finish that eliminates the reflection you get from pieces made from glossy plastic. All of these features put together make a terrific tournament set and with a different look from the rest.

I truly enjoy this set for it's craftsmanship and design of the Knight although I'd wish that it were a bit "beefier" in stature like the knights from the Zukert set. Having said that I'm quite pleased with this edition of Staunton design, modern, great weight and feel to the pieces especially the Queen to whereas I'm not concerned of injuring myself handling the points of her coronations because they are rounded off. Great for blitz type chess games. I will probably purchase a second set of these in ivory white, that's how much I like them! Thank you Chess Store you have a winner here with this set.
