B Draper, 26th December 2015

"Very pleased with this, the figures are a good weight and beautifully carved and finished. Very attractive board as well. Amazing service - arrived the day after I ordered it, and that was the free postage option! Highly recommend."

V Dunne, 28th March 2014

"As pleased with the product as I am with the service. The FREE delivery only took two days. I was sent the wrong board (without notation)and when I asked to swap for the right one they sent it as quickly as the first and told me I could keep the other one. On top of this even though the product is in their value range it is still of excellent quality. The pieces are flawless and are weighted perfectly, making them very pleasing to hold and play with. The dark stained box is a welcome addition, much better than the previous unstained one. Considering all of this I think that the price (£54.84 at time of writing) is wonderfully reasonable indeed. Being able to pay via PayPal was yet another much appreciated aspect of an overall very pleasing experience. I would definitely buy from them again and I would recommend this chess set to anyone because of its fantastic quality and great value."
