Default Nice chess set

Looks pretty easy to duplicate, and looks good.

The game of chess is not in the look of the pieces but in the mind of the player. This set is simple but yet the pieces are identifiable so it would be adequate. I had a miniature set while in the Navy (space is at a premium) and it worked just fine.

That's an interesting, very modern looking set. The beauty is in the wood selection.

I'm basically a fan of classic style chess sets, or Isle of Lewis sets, not much into modern styles, but this modern set I like.

Theo have you ever played chess before? I have not played chess before but my two grandsons use to play a lot. They would go to matches and play. Some of them were even out of town. That was when they were 12 or 13 years old. I really don't like games of any kind just woodworking.

Oh yes, great game. No a great player, but love the game anyway. A group of us used to play a lot in Thailand. A Swiss bar supplied chess boards and pieces. Problem with playing there, we all drank beer, and just kept getting worse as the evening went by. Great times, with great guys.

When I first moved here, one of my new neighbors bragged about what a great player he was, and he won all the time. He asked me to play, and I told him I hadn't played for a long time, and wasn't very good anyway. He insisted. So I proceeded to whip him badly. He was a very poor loser. His buddy told me later that he let him win because he was such a poor loser. I think it might be time to get another chess set, and teach the grandson to play.
