The Chess Expert's Combination - Regulation Silicone Pieces | Silicone Chess Board | Deluxe Bag | Luxe Scorebook
- Product Review (submitted on February 2, 2020):
- I purchased this set to play with my 6 year old twins. I like the weight of the pieces (heavy, a good feel to it), and that the mat always lays flat (even on carpet). The pieces are hair and dirt magnets, which I expected with silicone. It's very minor, however, it might be off-putting if using it for competition play. The bag has plenty of space, and the chess book included is very high quality. I saw reviews that players did not like that the pieces stick or do not slide when moving or adjusting. That was my biggest concern when deciding to go with full silicone. However, I've had no problems with this, not noticeable at all. Finally, the finish from the mold is noticeable. A thin line where they connect, or slightly irregular. This is only noticeable if you are staring or comparing pieces. So they are not pieces of artwork, it's to play, and you would only notice it if you really focused on it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
