Once again, thanks for the opinions and info. From what i’ve heard and research i’ve done, I’ve decided to go with the chess store for that set I listed above. My board is 19″ with 2.125″ squares, so I should be gtg with this set! I would not dare go with pieces larger than this though.

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!
We recently added two new styles of chess board to our huge range. The first is a very high quality black anegre and maple board that has been finished in a stunning gloss lacquer. These boards are available in sizes from around eighteen inches up to over twenty three inches. The second is a brand new design of chess board and is exclusive to The Regency Chess Company. It features black anegre squares and a rich brown palisander border. Like the black boards this is finished in a gloss lacquer and available in four different sizes. Both boards feature fine inlaid veneers and have been manufactured in Europe to a very high standard of precision and quality.

The set I received is far different. Its the “Exclusive Staunton 4″ King Set” (listed way above) but the bishop looks nothing like that. The head is waay fatter, and thicker. Also, the pieces are generally “fatter” and fuller in stature. The knights almost look laughable. Below is a photo I found on their site of the exact one (minus color choice) I received with the fatter, weird looking pieces. Compare this to original ebay auction link I posted above. Not even close
Like how much different? I been looking at TheChessStore quite alot and notice a few oddities with their set listings. Specifically i’ve been eyeing the Fierce Knight set and after browsing their site for hours for weeks on end I noticed something interesting.
