This review is from: Travel Magnetic Chess Set – 9.7″‘ (Toy) Pros:Small, lightweight and portableIt’s fun to play with while on the go. Cons:Magnets come off easily. When I opened the package I noted several pieces without magnets (magnets came off). My suggested fix (use crazy glue):1. Put chess pieces in Ziplock plastic bag2. shake Ziplock plastic bag with all the pieces vigorously3. check for pieces with missing magnets4. use glue (crazy glue or gorilla glue) to attach magnet back into piece 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 60 of 62 people found the following review helpful great deal for a nice little trave chess set!, November 2, 2009 By Elizabeth (NJ) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Travel Magnetic Chess Set – 9.7″‘ (Toy) We wanted to get an inexpensive chess set for our 10 year old to take places with her…one we wouldn’t freak out about if she lost it, or pieces of it, or whatever.This does the job!Looks much better than expected, magnets are strong (can hold the board upside down & none’ll fall off….till you shake it, of course)Great deal for the price… or even for a bit more. 🙂 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 53 of 55 people found the following review helpful Very good quality for such a small and inexpensive set, January 12, 2010 By Modern Blue Argonaut “No I do not have a shoe… (Orlando, FL) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Travel Magnetic Chess Set – 9.7″‘ (Toy) Although this is not a game room quality set, I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality and look of this set. My daughter wanted a small set to carry in her backpack to school, and in the box, this measures about 10″ x 5″ x 1.75″. It weighs just under 15 ounces. Although the pieces are plastic, they look very nice and classy. The board folds in (playing area facing out) which would be my only complaint, since the board can easily get scratched that way. All the pieces fit inside the closed board and the entire thing snaps shut. I’m very happy with this set and recommend it for anyone who wants a very small portable chess set. The game folds out to 9.75″ square, and each of the pieces have a minimal felt bottom hiding the magnet. My daughter was able to walk around with the chess set upside down, but if you shake it at all, the pieces will fall or slide right off. However, for most intents and purposes, I imagine most people do not walk with the board upside down so the magnets just help to prevent shifting, like if playing in a car or moving it from desk to desk in a classroom. The box is very charming in a MADE IN CHINA way, with things like, “Exquisite and easy-carry” and “International Standard Good Materials Modern Colors Enlightenment & Entertainment”. Whew… that was entertaining! I’ll definitely keep this company in mind in case I need other travel sized games. 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.
