As a non-chess player, I was a little overwhelmed when my daughter suggested that I could get her boyfriend a chess set for Christmas. I spent more time searching for this item than any other gift I gave this year! I wanted something that didn't look and feel cheap, but didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars either. Until I found this one, everything else seemed childish or over-the-top expensive. I took a chance with this one, and I am VERY pleased. The board is lovely, balanced, and the pieces are nicely weighted. There's no way they will fall over during play, which is the main thing I was trying to avoid. The pieces also look like a nicely polished wood, although they are actually a polymer of some kind. I was so surprised that the box is so heavy! It feels like a set that costs a whole lot more. I am very proud to give it as a gift. In fact, it makes me want to learn to play. Buy this one with confidence. I saw it advertised on both ebay and amazon, but saved $10 by going straight to NexusGadgets.com instead. Enjoy!

The resin pieces are VERY nicely made, classic design and excellent knights - the weighting is very pleasant. Fitted case will keep the pieces looking good for years too! For $100 this is an outstanding deal.
