BEST Chess Set for the money!

I bought these pieces and love them so much I even made a video for them, and for Wood Expressions especially.

I wish I would have found these pieces earlier. They meet all of my needs. Really heavy, very durable, tournament sized and I consider them to be a great value.

Best part is how the weights are integrated into the plastic, so they won't come loose and rattle (which degrades the experience and is a distraction when it happens in pieces of lower quality).

On top of the superior quality, their customer service is unparalleled. I contacted them about replacing a lost black pawn for the set I purchased from them, and just a few days later the replacement they sent me arrived, and I am so happy.

If you are on the market for a chess set, get this one from this company. They deserve your business, and as a customer, you deserve their quality product and service.

Superb Set - Highly recomended

This is a excellent set of pieces in every respect. Heavy base weighting keeps the pieces in place and upright even during energetic play or lumpy surfaces. Very tough and durable material shaped into pieces that are easy to grip and pleasant to the touch. The slightly off-white ivory/cream color of the White pieces is also an attractive feature. Even the heavy green box is well made and seems sturdy enough for storage or travel!

I also have a hand carved rosewood and boxwood set that has been shelved since these pieces arrived. This set has quickly become the favorite among all the players in our house.

Hopefully you will never have an issue with this set, but if you do, the customer service at Wood Expressions is great, going above and beyond what it takes to make things right even if it was my dog who loved the set so much that she nibbled on a couple of pieces.

So in my opinion "ULTIMATE CHESS PIECES" is not just a name but an accurate description of this set.
