Fox – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: This review is from: 15″ Standard Wooden Chess Set (Toy) I received this chess set as a gift, and I love it! The board and pieces have been constructed very well of solid wood that should prove to be very durable. A feature not found with similar sets is that the board doubles as a case for the pieces which are actually held in place individually so they don’t bounce around and get chipped. This is an excellent gift idea for any chess player or anyone who wants to learn! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 47 of 49 people found the following review helpful Not as pictured, November 29, 2014 By Kara N. Friend (Charleston, WV United States) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: 15″ Standard Wooden Chess Set (Toy) The chess set I received is not the same as the item pictured or described in some other reviews. The product I got is poor quality, and I will return it. The wood is very lightweight — the kind used for inexpensive doll houses or cheap hobby craft kits. One review described the the pieces as being held in place inside the board, but this is a very basic box that would let the pieces rattle around. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 57 of 62 people found the following review helpful Great value, high quality set, October 11, 2007 By Zaine Ridling (Missouri, US) – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: 15″ Standard Wooden Chess Set (Toy) This fine set offers perhaps the biggest bang for your buck in terms of quality, size, design, and portability for a mid-range chess board. Width-wise, its folding size is that of a book, and just as easy to carry. The pieces are fine Staunton wood pieces, and the polished board itself has an elegant appearance. I highly recommend this for anyone; it will last many years. Only negative: The set’s only detraction is that it does not come with extra Queens. But you can substitute pieces or just use another set. I prefer the plain-Jane plastic weighted Hastings tournament piece sets which are inexpensive and highly durable. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
