To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Took me so long to find something that wasn't of a cheap design or 'travel sized' as many had made this same mistake and this is one of the best looking and best quality chess boards I've had, certainly for this price. Some of the pieces are slightly imperfect but this just adds to the charm of being a handmade item. The felt on the bottom of the pieces and inside makes it just that bit more luxurious. Love it!
At junior chess tournaments, everyone keeps asking us where we got this item, as the King and Queen look great. Very reasonably priced product, and doesn't take over all the table when at tournaments, where 'table space' is often difficult to find. Also, unlike Tournament Size chess sets, where the board is invariably plastic, (rolled out), this board is stable, so friends/other competitors can borrow it, without having to 're-set' the board. The smaller size makes for easy transportation in our 'chess bag' (large shopping bag) and I just enclose the set in a soft cloth bag, and don't bother with the cardboard packaging. A really ideal, functional product; delighted.
I chose this set for several reasons. 1. It was one of the cheaper sets, my son is only 14. I noticed it had a really attractive old fashioned wooden pieces 3. It has a lovely carrying case design to keep the pieces safe. 4. I liked the look of it. My son who is 14 and playing chess for his school takes it everywhere, it is a really decent fun good-looking set and I recommend it highly. Don't hesitate.
