Advance with Staunton. While chess originated in 6th-century India, it wasn’t until 1849 that the pieces we’re familiar with today were standardized. Known as Staunton Pattern pieces, they consist of a king crowned with a cross (the tallest piece), a coronet-topped queen, realistically rendered horse-head knights, castle-shaped rooks, slash-ingrained bishops and simple round-headed pawns.

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:

Essentially the chessboard is the same as the board used to play English draughts or American checkers, although the in play the chessboard is laid in a different orientation from draughts in that the board is placed between the opposing players with a white square in the bottom right hand corner.
this chess board is a simple basic looking wooden chess board. There was a tiny chip in the board I received, but it wasn’t damaged enough for me to even complain. I just colored the tiny space piece in with a sharpie, took less than a second. The chess board is durable and I like that the board doesn’t fold.

It’s not very well made… The board had cracked wood underneath, and the pieces aren’t very detailed. Some wood chips were even left in bishops’ visors, almost like the makers didn’t bother putting time into making the product look nice.
