These classic pieces are easily recognizable and ready for a serious game of chess! They're also beautiful on display, complete with a matching folding board with both algebraic notation and interior storage of pieces.
For $70, this was absolute garbage. The pieces had scratches all over them. They looked very bad. The inside "felt" to hold your pieces? Well that was just a cheap, thin, plastic insert with the thinnest layer of some sort of green softer material. To be honest, the actual board itself wasn't that bad in terms of looks. However, the notation looks like it was written by hand with a sharpie. Whatever wood they used felt really cheap and easy to damage. If you were hesitant to pay $100+ like me for a chess set, just stick to plastic and vinyl sets, or maybe just buy a wood board. If you want anything substantial for your money, you are hard pressed to find anything under 100. Staunton had a build it yourself kit for $140.
