I am not a good player, but I got into chess because a guy on my job plays, and plays well. He always mops the floor with me. In order to no lose too badly, I’ve decided to practice against a computer and work through some problems at home. This set is ideal for that. The pieces are big and heavy. The bishops are really different looking than the pawns. That’s important for beginners like me because at times I’ll think I have a bishop somewhere, but it’s really a pawn, and vice-versa. The white pieces are not too white. They sort of look like the ivory they are supposed to mimic. The rooks and kings are tall. The queen has a pretty sharp crown that may be prone to break a bit, but that’s a minor complaint. While I’ve never played in tournament, I can imagine that this set would be great for that too. But I think this set is more suited to play with friends and it’s great for adult beginners who want to have the tactile sense that pieces have weight and are solid. Also the service is awesome. I ordered the set on Thursday evening and it was in New York on Monday morning. Don’t panic if the bag isn’t there with the set. They send the bad separately. In sum, it’s a 5 star 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 | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
