This chess board is beautifully crafted. My son was very impressed.
I bought the championship set for my son's 9th birthday and he loves it. Great quality for a good price.
We have had a lord of the rings chess set for quite some time and the kids learnt how to play chess using Gandalf, Frodo etc. Per chance I saw my son play chess with another child his age and got hammered, only because he did not know what a standard bishop/knight/castle etc looked like. Figured it was time to upgrade. Found Chess store on line with Free delivery special and received in within 2 days. Great service.
Perfect birthday gift for casual chess player. Quality of board and pieces is excellent and the price is very accpetable
