Easy to put away/store., April 9, 2008 By J. Matt Landrum (Portland, OR USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Classic Wood Chess Set (Toy) I think this is a very nice set for the price. It’s well constructed and the fact that you can just flip the board over, dump all the pieces in, and fold it in half means even my 9 year old can easily keep it put away when not in use (and not lose pieces). The pieces are smallish, but the description is accurate so you know what you’re getting. I think it’s a very acceptable and well-made first chess set. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 48 of 49 people found the following review helpful Great chess set for the beginning player, December 4, 2008 By Dave (Maine) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Classic Wood Chess Set (Toy) I’m very happy with this chess set, which I purchased for my 8-year-old. He’s new at chess and this set is value priced and fairly well constructed for a child. The board surface is small, so you’ll want to consider the measurements provided in the description to estimate what you’ll be getting. I found the pieces to be fine and the folding board with storage is convenient and easy for a child to handle. Overall this is a great choice for an entry level player. Older and more experience players will definitely want to look at more pricey, larger, and higher quality models. UPDATE, October 2011: I just upped this review from 4 stars to 5 stars. Three years after purchase this chess set is still holding up and looks brand new. A great purchase at this price! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 24 of 27 people found the following review helpful Not well made, January 14, 2011 By Kenny (Long Island, New York) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Classic Wood Chess Set (Toy) My daughter immediately noticed that the white queen and king are much smaller than the black’s. It is functional, but the pieces are not well made at all. I would rather have well made plastic set. 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 | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
