One of the main reasons I am so happy with this set is that the designer has solved that problem for me. Once you open the magnetic closure on the board you will see an elastic band woven into the felt lining that is designed to hold each piece in place individually. This means that during travel there are not only no unexpected accidents, but the pieces travel quietly and will not get knicked up constantly from being on top of each other. The wood used for the chess board is lightweight and beautifully put together with no rough edges. The pieces are nicely carved, though I did have one dark brown pawn arrive with half of it’s round head missing. It is not terribly noticeable but still it tells me that they need to do just a touch better on quality control since the other 1/2 was not anywhere in the box, which says to me that it was broken before shipment and not after. It certainly wasn’t worth sending the entire game back just for that small flaw, but I did feel in the spirit of full disclosure that needed to be mentioned. It is a nice set for anyone who enjoys a game on the go. I did receive this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

B. – This review is from: Kangaroo’s Folding Wooden Chess Set With Magnet Closure (Toy) This rule is NOT in the instructions: When your pawn reaches the other side of the board you can replace with a piece of your choice. I’ve been looking for a wooden chess set for some time. I played chess when I was a kid and really wanted to teach my son but durable wooden chess sets can be super expensive. This set is great- the board is smaller and folds in half with the pieces securely inside in individual elastic loops. A small magnet keeps it closed.It is all wood, I could smell the fresh stain and varnish upon opening it the first time. A few things I noticed:– All pieces are intact and appropriate, though some of the felt bottoms are a bit off center.– One of the bishops has a little bump of wood on the middle of the bottom from being made which makes it teeter to one side or the other.– The finish on the pieces and the sides of the board is a bit rough- it could’ve used another sanding before staining and varnishing. Only the playing surface is nice and smooth. But all in all I am pleased with this chess set- a decent wood set is hard to come by and the retail price and quality is comparable to another set I looked at in a local retail store. We’ve been playing a game of chess every night since receiving!I purchased this set at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
