Although the golden rosewood vs ebony isn’t traditional, I like that it is darker. My board has darker squares and border, so plain boxwood never looked quite right on it. I look forward to receiving what will hopefully be my first quality chess set! I will update you guys when I get it next week 🙂

I have been burned twice in buying chess sets from less than reputable dealers. These “chess experts” claim they are selling the best thing since cream cheese, and then send me a set with uneven weights, miscolored pieces and overall bad workmanship. My biggest and most annoying experience has been with weights 1/2 popping out of the bottom of pieces, so they sit unevenly on the board. In other words, the bottoms are not 100% flat with the weight. Is this common amongst Staunton sets? I am guessing this is just a sign of bad workmanship.
G.M. from MS writes, “I received the Rosewood Players chess set today and all I can say is… outstanding! It is a magnificent set. I couldn’t ask for a better chess set, it puts my set from the USCF I got in the 80’s to shame.”

As well as flat boards, there is a vast range of folding chessboards. These are hinged boards that can become a casket to keep the pieces in. This is a clever way to store your whole chess set in a convenient, easily transportable box. The chequered board becomes the decorative design on the outside of the box. Simple and clever!
I was very pleased when I opened this wood chess set. It is all wood and it doesn’t have the crack in the center like many boards with the hinges. I hate those since the hinges frequently break and the crack is a nuisance when pushing pieces over to the enemy territory. This board is solid, not too large to be trouble storing and not too small, as a lot of them are today that look more like a tic-tac-toe board. Like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this one is just right.
