Great chess board
Amazing board I play with it all the time
This chess is very classy looking for the price and perfect for learning the game. Much better than the cardboard ones. I love it!
The chess board is good quality. So are the chess pieces. The wood looks very nice. The felt that the pieces are stored in scratches easily. Shipped quickly.
Awesome! Given as a gift to grandson who has Polish ancestry and he loves it.
