I paid for a regular sized chess board for about 20-30$ and I received a less expensive miniature version of the board. Not expensive enough to go through the trouble of sending the board back so it just made for a irritating experience.
Not what I expected. The pieces
Not what I expected. The pieces do not fit in case properly so therefore when you open it they fly out Pieces Don't stay put as advertised! Wouldn't reccommend.
I can blow the pieces over w/ my own breath. There is practically 0 magnification. Not a magnetic chess set at all. I went to the store and bought real magnets, scraped off the felt on each piece, super glued them together, bought new felt and glued that on. I’ve spent 15 more bucks and about two hrs of time and craft. . . Now, I have a magnetic chess set.
