Love the size of the board and wooden pieces are perfect size. Very much enjoying our chess set.
This was a Christmas gift. When he opened the package he was so pleased as to the quality of the Chess Set . He loved the wood case that served as the chess board and storage box for the pieces. Was so pleased that the storage section was departmentalized for each piece. Pieces were unique and seemed very well made. So yes he was surprised and happy.
The chess set came in quickly and the quality is great! Just as we expected. Our granddaughter was pleasantly surprised since her current chess board had been worn out and broken ( it was cardboard). They play often. Thanks Yellow Mountain
