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.
Well made and portable
The pieces are nicely made and consistent. They don’t stay put in their slots, but the clasps that secure the board when it’s folded close make sure that no pieces fall out. The play area is comfortably big without being excessive. It’s a beautiful looking set altogether.
