Really Good, Glad to Have a High Quality Chess Retailer in SA

The crosses on the kings are more stubby than in the pictures, the white queen has a sizable scuff mark on the base, and one of the white rooks has a weird discolour in the grain on one side, but I think almost everything else is actually perfect. Everything looks and feels incredible, i don't think I'll need to buy another chess set for the rest of my life.

FYI - the set does not include extra queens and the board doesn't have any rubber/felt pads underneath. Also, the light squares on the board are made with a softer wood and can dent easily, so be careful.

Great Set to start practicing your skills. All the pieces are unique and well balanced. Would love to see what the more advanced sets have to offer.
