nice start up chess set Review by RJY

This is a nice beginning set for anybody wanting to the learn the game, or tournament play. You really can't go wrong getting any of the H.O.S. regulation sets that sell for around $10 or less. This set is exactly as shown online and has basically the same design as the other single and triple weight regulation sets. They are solid plastic and as advertise seem like they can take abuse and still not break. The difference from this solid set compare to the other regulation sets is minor. The bishop from the solid set is about 1/8" taller than other bishop, and the queen's crown design differs from other set. The biggest difference is that the solid rook is actually 1/4" taller than other regulation sets rook and measures 2" tall. If you look at the online images you can make out the minor differences. Not as heavy as the triple weighted regulation pieces and on a windy day they might get blown around, but otherwise for solid pieces they have decent weight. They also have a slight shine to them which I prefer. If you prefer the flat matte finish I would not recommend then for you. The ivory color also has a good off white color like the other regulation sets. I have purchase more expensive sets that have the ivory color too bright for my liking, leaning more towards white than ivory. Overall this is a good set under I would recommend for anyone.
