    Great set

    This is a great set, because it folds up nicely and the pieces are nice to look at, it's also easy to carry around. The only problem I found with it is that the pieces break kind of easily. Be careful not to drop the bag, or any of the pieces. i already broke the cross on the kings head, the dot on top of the bishop, a pawn, and one of my bishops cracked.Good set, just be careful with the pieces.

    I liked this product because it is big and easy to see the possible moves on the board.

    This chess board is very good. It is very compact to travel with. The chess board folds by it's size two times.
