In general, the following principles apply:

Buy the Best
Most people only have one fine staunton chess set, with maybe a travel set too. So don't go cheap if your budget can take more. It's not as if our prices are the same as conventional stores! To have a beautiful chess product that can be passed on to the next generation with pride is rare and a valuable experience. We have the chess products to match.

Examine the Knight
With fine quality chess sets and chess pieces the Knight is often the heralder of quality or otherwise. Where the teeth are showing, the bridle a feature, or the nostrils flaring - ahah! that's a great set. But be sure that the chess pieces that compliment it are equally charming. That brings us to the next point: weight!

Consider Weighting
The higher quality chess sets have weight added into the base along with the wood used being of good density. To lift a triple weighted chess piece with weight is a wonderful experience. On the other hand to continually have to pick up non weighted fallen pieces because they've been the victim of a mistaken finger brush is frustrating. If your budget stretches, buy a weighted chess set.

Size the ChessBoard Properly
Having chosen the pieces, don't go cheap on the board. The chess board is almost 50% of the appeal. Great chess pieces on a great chess board look the part and impress greatly. We provide the recommended size of the chess board, so be sure that you have the room for the required board by multiplying the square size by 10 (Only 8 squares, but our boards have generous margins).

Thank you for visiting.
