Product Reviews

"Chess piece quality great. My only criticism is that the height of the pieces is slightly too low to comply with FIDE tournament regulations. The width of the pawn base is also slightly too wide. However, this set matched the regulations the closest compared to any other wooden set I could find on the internet. Although I wouldn't be using a wooden set in tournaments I still like to play with it at home and having proper sized pieces makes it easier to get used to tournament boards. Visually also easier to picture patterns with proper sized pieces. I contacted the store and some other stores and apparently the standard nowadays is to have wooden chess pieces be larger in size for display purposes. (Source: Standards of Chess Equipment and tournament venue for FIDE Tournaments, sections 2.2 and 3.2) The board was not perfect but good for the price. The light edging around the squares was slightly off in three of its corners."

"Excellent set, for me its not cheap but you get what you pay for. Pieces are the perfect size and the weight is spot on, feels really substancial when playing. Set gives an air of class and quality, very happy. One minor point is the optional feet, don't bother. Feels a bit cheeky to have to pay 80p extra when spending a lot on a chess set and they are just little disks of felt. Will find a nicer solution fit for such a quality chess set."
