We bought this for outdoor recess. The students love how big the pieces are. The chess board is easy to fold up. My only wish is that there was a bag or something to carry all the pieces in.

The set arrived quickly by Fed Ex and in excellent condition. The pieces are as described on the web site and great fun to play with. Personally I find the mat a bit small which makes the chessmen crowd together but I’ve got a patio made from 12″ pavers which works really well. Overall I’m very satisfied.

Perfect for demonstrating the need to see both sides of the board – monitoring both black and white positions and moves from both perspectives, to make strategic decisions.
Its added visual drama is great for children just learning the game and all it teaches about a life of strategic decisions.
We bought a waterproof outdoor box to most conveniently hold its parts on our backyard deck.

The 16″ chess set is great! It is the perfect size for my kids to play chess in our backyard. We have 1′ x 1′ stone pavers. The folding chess board is also awesome, so we can take it with us to the mountains. I was very impressed with the speed of delivery & efficiency of ordering it online. No hassles or problems!

Exactly what we hoped for. Well built pieces. We did buy a wheeled rubber maid container to hold the set which we store under our deck. Some other reviewers felt the board that comes with the set is too small. I disagree; I think it is the perfect size. The price was fair, customer service was superb and delivery was right on time. We are happy campers!

I purchased this for my daughter’s high school graduation party. It was a hit. They played all night, and the pieces were the perfect size.
Editors note: This is great, teenagers not engaged in a “device”, kudos go out to you for getting this for their grad party!
