What i’ve figured out though is that’s not actually what they look like, they’re using the 4″ King picture template in the “Pieces Only” listing for the 3 inch set, the 3.5 inch set and the 4 inch set. Here is what the 3″ itself actually looks like:

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 the original ebay auction link I posted above. Not even close
R.G. from Alaska writes, “I have just received my order of Professional Series chess pieces. I must say that they are gorgeous! I felt I was treated as if one of the family in the way the order was taken and delivered. I’m a very happy customer!”
The wood used for the squares are Cherry and Norway Maple, the border is made from Norway maple. All of the wood used was harvested from local tress fallen during storms. After a really bad storm I ALWAYS drive around with a chainsaw offering to help and haul away some of their larger pieces (so glad I have a trailer).

MY DEFINITION OF PREMIUM, DIFFERS BY AN INFINITE AMOUNT. LAYERED TOILET PAPER IS THE CORE THAT WAS EXPOSED BY THE THREE DAMAGED CORNERS. COME ON, THERE’S ONLY FOUR. THE ONLY LIKEABLE FEATURE,BUT STILL BOGUS, IS THE RUBBER FEET INSTEAD OF FELT. CHINESE MADE. THEREFORE, CHINESE CHECKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Board is 15.5″ X 15.5″. From beginners to established players, this travel chess set is an ideal gift for all! No worrying about lost or pieces (or listening to pieces rattling around). Foldin…
The pieces look good and yes they don’t have felt bottoms, but I personally like them without the felt. It gives that chess piece sound when you move a piece, not silence as the felt ones do. To me, it seems extremely durable, I mean after all it is all wood, so unless you live with a gorilla, it should last. The cost can’t be beat either! I have seen a cardboard chess board and plastic pieces for almost as much as this one. A great buy and a great chess set!
