Customer Reviews

Good chess set, can be further improved Review by Brutus
The newly designed pawns are very useful. I’m a chess and chess variant fun. Have all the Musketeer Chess pieces already and I will complete my collection with the Next Generation Pawns that help me play more games and that fit with my needs as a chess variant inventor, providing me with endless possibilities especially for the variants with much more pieces than classic chess and with different pawn or pawn like pieces.

The classic chess set should have been slightly bigger and weighted but the quality of the classic pieces with the price is more than worth it. (Posted on 2/7/2020)
Simply elegant and beautiful Review by Superschaak
I love the new Next Generation Pawns. Simple graceful and beautiful design.

I have the opportunity to play Chess but also other games using and combining the pieces. The classic chess pieces are beautiful. My kids and buddies love them.
Next Generation pawns are weighted.
Will fit with bigger chess sets also. (Posted on 2/7/2020)
