Rated 2 out of 5 by KCB8711 Expectations not met
I ordered this chess set for my boyfriend's birthday, who is an avid chess player, and was really excited to find this set because he is also very much into anything medieval / mystical. I loved that it was unique and combined two of his favorite things. However, after opening the box, I noticed how poorly the board was put together. We didn't even get it onto the table before the outer wood started separating from the metal board. The board itself, is bent and dented along the edges, and for what I paid, I just had a lot higher expectations for something that is supposed to have been of good quality. The chess pieces are cute, not exactly the material I was expecting, but light weight and intricately designed. Regardless, I was extremely disappointed and will be sending the chess set back. We have not yet decided if we will exchange it for another one (hoping it will not have these same defects) or just return it completely.
