    This chess set is great! The board is big enough that you can really see all possible moves for your pieces, whereas it can be more difficult with smaller boards. The actual pieces are heavy enough to not fall over if they get tapped (a complaint I had with other boards) and they are easy to slide into squares. The only thing I could see as a downside to this board is, it is a little heavy. The board weighs about 17 lbs so if you are looking for a chess set to travel with, this might not be your best option. I have no complaints for this board.

    The felts at the bottom of some pices is uneven and causes the pieces to lean. The black pieces have color missing and show areas where it looks as though the color is "chipped" off.

      Comments about World Wise Black and White Marble Chess Set:

      The chessboard is amazing. It is elegantly perched upon the only table we have in the house, and gives me hours upon hours of humiliation as my partner mercilessly beats me. At chess.
      I hope I will get better.

        We ordered the black and white chess set, but when we opened on Christmas morning realized they sent a brown and black set instead! The set was a present for my my dad, but luckily he liked the colors anyway[...] everything was great!

        Comments about World Wise Black and White Marble Chess Set:

        Got what I expected. The pieces are obviously machine carved, and maybe I'm wrong but the white sections seem to be some kind of pressed stone. Overall it's fine. I'm satisfied with the size and heaviness of the board and pieces.
