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.
This is a gift for our granddaughter for Christmas, she is very keen on chess even at 7 years old. Being more ornate than a standard 'toy' set is a great advantage. Having a storage mould is also a bonus so you can see at a glance if a piece is missing. The inside does smell a bit at first as mentioned by another reviewer but the odour does disappear. All said I am delighted with my purchase.
Excellent product. You can really notice the craftsmanship. Good value too. The board is designed really well. My only small constructive criticisms are that the bishop and pawn pieceslook similar. A beginner finds it hard to tell the difference. Also the tops of the castles (rooks) were slightly flawed.
However this is a great product and I would definitely recommend purchase. Thank you.
