Our Premier Set of plastic chess pieces with a 4⅛" tall inch king, is perfect for those discriminating chess players who want an upscale set, without an exorbitant price. You won't find a set of such value for double the cost of this one. 

The Premier pieces have a beautiful finish. The white pieces area striking Ivory/Natural color, a shade darker than light ivory but not as dark as the caramel-color of some natural pieces. The set weighs in at a hefty 3.75 pounds. The king weighs a full 65 grams (2.2 ounces.)
 
As you would expect with a set of such quality, there is an extra queen of both colors. The king base is 1⅞" inches so a board with 2¼ inch or larger squares is preferable.
 
Additional Chess Piece Size information:

  • Queen: 3¼ inches
  • Bishop: 3 inches
  • Knight: 2¾ inches
  • Rook: 2½ inches
  • Pawn: 2?ࢠinches

    We love them!!

    Posted by Rachelle on 6th Sep 2021

    These fit perfectly on our board with 2" squares, the king stands out way better than our other set since the king is so much taller than the queen (I'm still learning chess so this is a huge help), and the weight of each piece feels great. Worth every penny!

    PREMIER CHESS PIECES - 4 1/8" KING

    Posted by NY Jack on 18th Mar 2021

    As the name says, this is a premier plastic chess set. The pieces feel incredible in your hands and the details are as good as you'll find in any cast chess pieces. Perhaps the best feature is the heavy weight of the pieces. I've seen some squabbling about the weight of certain pieces, but I find every piece among the heaviest I've seen. The casting seams are as smooth as one could expect. Really invisible from a distance. Overall, I doubt there is a better set in this price range as well as much higher. I am thrilled with this set!!!

    great set

    Posted by martini mike on 12th Mar 2021

    i absolutely enjoy this grand set. although unlikely to ever use the second queen, that was a nice touch. the pieces are incredibly sturdy and heavy versus a hard table bump. definitely recommend. they are large enough to study the board from quite a distance..

    I really enjoy these larger pieces. You definitely need a bigger board but they are awesome

    Nice playing set

    Posted by Michael Noland on 3rd Jan 2021

    Had this set a few years and its a good set for playing friends or club. I saw other comments about the piece weights and I agree... the king and queen should weigh more than the rook and knights but they dont. - King 68g and rook 71 grams. A little annoying but not major. The queens are a bit pointy, but that's not really a problem. I protect the crown with a foam piece when I stash it away. - Still its a good value set and the pieces are large and give a good presence for the game. Really I rate it at
    3.5 stars, not fantastic, but good.

    VERY DISSATISFIED AND DISAPPOINTED

    Posted by Vladimir on 7th May 2020

    As soon as I opened the bags I noticed some discrepancies in the pieces weight... After placing them over the board I realized the weight difference between them.

    Immediately I asked my girlfriend, that was looking at my order, if she noticed the discrepancies between the weight of some pieces and she said: yeah of course!!

    For example the knights and rooks from both colors weighted 2 oz each (knight=2 oz, rook =2 oz) however the KING which weighted 2 oz and the QUEEN (~1 oz) should be heavier than the KNIGHT and the ROOK, besides the BISHOPS (supposed to weight equal to knights and rooks) weighted less than 2 oz

    KING + QUEEN + BISHOP = 6 oz
    ROOK + KNIGHT = 4 oz

    Impossible that KQB weights barely 2 oz over RK

    Premier chessmen

    I love these chessmen! Large & weighty, they lend the game the gravitas it deserves. They could even stand to be heavier. Well worth the price.

    Great Value for Money, But Beware the Queens' Thorny Crowns

    Posted by Thomas Muething on 8th Feb 2020

    This tall, heavily weighted set offers excellent value for money at the sales price. Cast in a classic, stylish Staunton design, the pieces are well made, the molding seams not too obtrusive for a glossy set. I especially like the tall, elegantly shaped knights. The only caveat are the razor sharp crowns on all the queens. They were individually wrapped inside the poly bag, and for good reason. You can easily hurt yourself during a game, I suggest you'd sand them off before playing. Set might be tad too heavy (1.7kg, 3.75lbs, with 70g kings) for Blitz. Wholly recommended.
