We have enjoyed the set as my son and I play often. The board is not as flimsy as a cardboard one and is more stable as you have to turn it over to set the board. On the inside there are elastic bands to put the pieces in when storing, but they are a bit troublesome, so we simply put them back in the plasitc bags they arrived in. The pieces are small, but of appropriate size for the board and also for adult hands to play with them. Overall, this is an okay product. I would buy it again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 79 of 84 people found the following review helpful A decent chess set, March 2, 2008 By Amazon Customer (California, USA) – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Classic Wood Folding Chess Set (Toy) This set is OK. The board, is 14 3/4 inches square. It looks nice when it is open, but doesn’t close completely even when latched (there is about a 1/8 inch gap on one side.) This may just be a problem with the one I got, but it bugs me a little. What bugs me alot is that the elastic that holds the pieces in place on the inside broke after about the 4th time it was used. Now 3 of the pieces are always loose inside when the set is closed. The chessmen are wood. They are not very detailed, but they aren’t bad. The king is 3 inches tall and about 1 inch in diameter at the base. Honestly, the pieces look a little small on the board to me, but you can always get bigger pieces. If you’re looking for a decent chess set that folds up and keeps everything in one place (even if the pieces rattle around inside), I’d say this was a pretty good set. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 108 of 126 people found the following review helpful Disappointing, April 16, 2010 By Amazon Customer – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Classic Wood Folding Chess Set (Toy) It looks like I’m in the minority on this product. Perhaps my expectations were too high. My issue is with the quality and attention to detail in this board. I’ve played chess for over 25 years and used everything from wood and metal boards to Chessmaster. The design was aesthetically very poor; little to no effort was put into making the Knight look like a horse and the Kings were marginally differentiated from the queen. The execution of the design was worse; cut lines in the bishops weren’t straight or clean while pieces of felt were still stuck to random parts of the pieces. The boad itself is simple particle board. I undrstand these are “hand carved” pieces but this thing made me feel like it was something my 4-year old niece would have done. If you read my other reviews you will see that, for the most part, I am not a curmudgeon or extremely picky. But this thing just got mailed back to Amazon. 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.
