Very poor quality.VERY DISSAPOINTING!!!
No zipper pocket to store roll-up chess board. Just 2 elastic straps holding board in the zipper canvas which broke when removing the board. no special zipper pouch to hold pieces. Just barely long enough to hold the board, had to squeeze it in. Chess pieces were slightly weighted with magnets but not heavily weighted as other companies I have ordered from. Inferior plastic
My experience with yellow mountain was top shelf . I love the fact that they are bringing analog games back . They will have my business thank you yellow mountain games .
I'm very pleased with this purchase. The reasonable price represents a double bonus when coupled with the quick delivery.
Purchase did not live up to expectations. Although pieces were tall enough, their weight was too light for my taste. No place in travel bag for tournament clock. Travel bag cheaply constructed. I gave purchase to my grandson and reclaimed the more sturdy "Excalibur" system I had loaned him.
