These clear chess demo pieces let you see through to the squares of the hanging demo board and give a more natural looking chessboard, much like you see when playing over the regular board. (Solid white pieces hide a lot of the square and make the board look odd.)
These pieces fit the Large 27" Demo Board perfectly and are modeled after popular chess fonts that are used in today's books and computer programs so your students will recognize them. These pieces include some red stars for teaching.
I don't think these are quite as thick as the original replacement pieces; they feel a bit more flexible. That's a little disappointing. But as long as I'm careful with them, I'm sure they'll last for many years.
I like the demo board and it survived the hurricane last year in spite of being soaked in water for over a week, we were able to dry the pockets out and keep using it. I would like to see better finish on the painted portion of the pieces. Also I would like to see them offered in assorted colors like the chess pieces you offer.
