If you want a set of plastic chess pieces that are quality, weighted, and more detailed than the standard plastic pieces, this is the set for you! These historical pieces were created to commemorate the famous 1895 Tournament at Hastings, England, in which many well known players competed, including Lasker, Tarrasch, Chigorin, and many more, but Harry Nelson Pillsbury, a young American from Massachusetts, became the winner. This was a surprise as Pillsbury was basically unknown outside of the United States at that point.
These pieces are available in black or red for the dark pieces and ivory/white or natural for the light pieces.
The red pieces in this set are a dark crimson burgundy and may look darker than the photos above.
This is my favorite among the six sets I purchased from WSC last week (the others were Premier, Marshall, Zurich and 2x Collector) . I find the style very likeable, especially the wonderfully molded knights which very closely resemble those of a much more expensive set by a different vendor. All the pieces are well-made, the seams from the molding process are very unobtrusive. Nicely thick green felt bottoms, too. I got this set in "natural" and black - the finish is matte. The white pieces are in a light beige tone, not yellow - very nice indeed. The set looks very classy. Only moderately weighted, at a total of 1.2kg (2.65lbs), the kings are 55g each. Perfect for speed chess, and they certainly stand firmly on the board. Highly recommended for design & quality. Shipping was safe and super-fast (to Germany).
My friends and I enjoy using these pieces with a silicone board I bought on this site, they have great weight and good looking pieces! I personally like a hefty rook piece in a set, and this had a great one
The Hastings plastic chess pieces with a 4" king is an excellent set of chess pieces. These chess pieces are so good, I have purchased three sets of Hastings chess pieces. I own one set of Hastings chess pieces in the black and natural, and two additional sets of Hastings chess pieces in the color of red and natural. The red and natural chess pieces are visually satisfying along with those magnificent knights. If you're looking to purchase quality plastic chess pieces, I highly recommend the Hastings plastic chess pieces with the 4" king, in the color red and natural. You will love it and enjoy playing chess with the Hastings plastic chess pieces.
