Great set with an impressive rook, elegant knight and slender royalty. I wish it were available in red as well, not that dark almost burgundy but a rich crimson. (Posted on 2/15/2020)

These pieces are near perfect. Lets get the cons out of the way as there are only a few. The first issue is that you can see all the mold lines running down the sides of most of the pieces. The lines are not super offensive if you are expecting them. They are, after all, molded plastic pieces. The black pieces tend to show more of the scuff, swirl, and imperfections of the plastic. And there is usually a little burr/tag on the bottoms of most pieces. I'm guessing this is from the injection molding process. This burr is easily removed with a sharp utility knife.

The pros of this set out way the cons and I would purchase this set time and time again. However, they are so well made and heavy duty, I doubt I will need to purchase another set. But I will be recommending this set to every player I know. The pieces are huge compared to most store bought sets. Even some of the "Perfect Chess Sets" advertised on Amazon do not compare. These pieces are HEAVY! It is such a treat to play with them. They feel great in your hand and even better smacking them down on the board with authority after a great move. Every time I play with them, my opponents immediately comment on the weight after their very first pawn move. The knights are beautifully crafted with great detail. The rooks are huge. I've seen too many sets that rely on the rook's technical status alone to convey its power on the board, but these rooks are physically impressing. I would recommend the "natural" white color over the standard white. It give it more of an antiqued, professional look.

You will not find a better set for this price! (Posted on 11/17/2019)
