Good Set, highly recommend it.

I searched for a long time on Amazon for a magnetic chess board that was nice. The reviews I found on boards ranging from $50-$150 were pretty poor. So I went off the grid and went with this board. We got it on time and the board is great. It was a birthday present to myself so my hopes were high.

The bad things that the other boards on Amazon had this one didnít. The craftsmanship was really good. The little details that everyone else was complaining about on the other boards were non existent. Things like cheap or misapplied felt, lame magnets, 2 sides not flush when opened, lines not strait, light cheap pieces, pieces of the same kind (rooks, pawns etc) were different sizes, missing magnets, bad customer service, and pieces too small for board size.

I didnít have those problems. The details were great. There wasnít anything wrong. If I could make a suggestion I would like the board to be a tiny bit harder wood. It wasnít a big deal at all and it doesnít feel cheap what so ever, but I was used to harder wood. Also, even though the magnets hold firm if the board is moved or tilted 45 degrees or so, I kinda woulda liked to be able to go the full 90degrees but the prices have a nice weight to them so they moved when I tilted it to 90. But big deal, but still. Lol
Those were the reasons I give it 4 stars, but
other those minor things itís a great set! My wife and kids now really play a lot of chess together cause the board is great to play on. I recommend it to anyone!
