This is a great set as long as it’s not sold by VIPtrades. I purchased this in December 2009 and one of the Kings obviously did NOT belong to the set. It clearly had a green color to the glass and did match the white frosted pieces it was intended for. I was very disappointed as it was a Christmas gift. Many of the pieces had small chips in the glass as if the set had been used and previously returned by other customers. I was shocked that the seller would ship such a poor quality product. Amazon honored my refund and I am very pleased with their customer service. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 7 of 7 people found the following review helpful Bad conditions, April 26, 2011 By Lidia Wilkowski – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I got this for my 14 year old son’s Birthday and when he opened the box, one of the frosted spaces had “the frost” chiped off. One of the knights had its head broken completely off! and some of the pieces were somewhere else in the packaging so you can tell that it wasn’t packaged with care. it looked like they just threw some pieces in there. The pads on the bottom of some chess pieces were coming off and one of the pieces had one of its pads ripped iff. Half of it was ripped off. I bought it new and you could tell it was used multiple times before. there are staines and marks on the frosted spaces. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful Decent Board — Crummy Pieces, September 19, 2011 By Jack, a computer geek since 1973 (Texass) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This chess set is definitely nothing to write home about. Everything another reviewer said about the poor quality was spot on. The felt pads on the bases are peeling off several pieces…right out of the box. Several pieces had chunks broken off of them at the factory, but were put in the set anyway. I don’t know what the glass of the black pieces is made of, and I don’t want to. Can cheap plastic be mixed with glass? That’s kind of what it looks like. The board is a mirror with the squares etched into it and the edges beveled. Looks nice for decoration, but I wouldn’t play on it. The etching is easily scratched and isn’t good quality either…little spots of missing etching here and there. I’ve seen this very same set selling for $60 elsewhere. Thank goodness for Amazon. I feel I got my $20 worth, but just barely. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
