This is an exquisite set - the board is professional and minimalistic in it's build, weight, and appearance, and the pieces are superbly crafted with intricate detail. Each piece is itself perfectly weighted, and there is something very satisfactory in the landing of the felt bottom against the wooden board. The set comes with a gorgeous travel box for your pieces, itself lined with the same high-quality felt that tightly lines the base of each piece. This allows the pieces to sit in the box rather securely with some grip, ensuring that they do not easily go skidding or flying around.

I'm really pleased. A high quality chess set that looks very 'classy' at a good price. The item came very securely wrapped. I ordered on Monday morning and the set and board arrived on Tuesday afternoon (even though I opted for standard first class postage). Communication from Regency Chess was excellent. So, I'm delighted with this purchase. Many thanks. Ian - Warrington. February 2015.

This is a fantastic chess set for the modest price charged. Carving and finish on pieces and board are excellent - in my opinion similar quality to sets costing considerably more. The lined hardwood storage box is a bonus. Excellent customer service - wrapping bullet proof and rapid delivery. All in all delighted customer Stan December 2014 Edinburgh
