For me, the pieces are too light. My ham-fisted, stubby hands tend to knock them over. Other than that, it's a nice, inexpensive set. YMMV !!
The set is a really nice set. It is a little lighter than I would prefer (so be sure to look at the set weights of different sets) but it is a playable weight. I really liked the design and would have loved if they made this set a heavier set. The pieces are not particularly tan. Mine came in as a light white (similar to khaki shorts) but again the design of this set was different than most and it was sold at a good price.
I had wanted to purchase a chess set that didn't resemble many sets seen being utilized in parks and clubs and this one had the features I was looking for in the knights and rooks. The kings, queens. bishops and pawns are nice as well and being a bit on the light side in weighting it's a good purchase for the price point and for my purpose and uses. I will take this with me to coffee shops or visits to the VA medical center here in New York when I have a little waiting time before my appointments. Thank you kindly, Chess store.
Very detailed, and well worth the money. The felt could be slightly thicker to keep the edges of the pieces from contacting my wood board.
Muy bien todo. El producto y el servicio
The pieces are sturdy and well made for the price point. I like them for the board I'm making. I am not an avid player but do enjoy an occasional game.
I recently retired and wanted to take up some activites that would exercise my declining mental abilities. I ordered some chess pieces and a rollup board from the Chess Store. The coast to coast delivery took only a few days. Both products arrived in excellent condition. Having a large chess set makes it easier to follow examples from the books I am reading.
Bought this to donate to local coffee shop, so that customers would be able to play a nice game of chess. Everybody loves it. While us pickier chess enthusiasts would probably go for something heavier, this fills the bill wonderfully. (The existing set they had was a lousy hollow plastic K-Mart set with red/black cardboard board.) The price is just right; seems like a good economy set for light occasional use. Probably not appropriate for blitz games, as pieces are not heavy enough. But should suffice for all other chess uses. Style of the pieces is nice too. No complaints. Paired this with a green/buff mouse pad board (2.25" squares). I'm please with this purchase, and am especially pleased with the Chess Store Customer Support!
