My 16 year old son liked it a lot
Chess set. Junior
Excellent. I was pleasantly surprised by look, and feel of this set. Best purchase of year for me.
So I made my purchase. Received my board and pieces. At first glance I thought that the 16" junior board was smaller than I thought,. And was slightly disappointed. But, once set up and after a night of playing chess with my wife , I realized it was the perfect size for us. Now off topic , the pieces look amazing and the board design looks great. My wife was absolutely struck by the "look " and design of this set. We are very happy. Thank Yellow Mountain Imports, we shall be fans for life.
I have a larger version of this chess set that's 20 years old. I got this new junior set for my grandson. He loves it and learned to play on it.
