Top ReviewsNice chess set

Was nervous about this purchase. It turned out to be better than I had expected.
The dragons are a nice silver color and bronze/gold color with good detail. The bottoms are felt so they slide nicely and do not scratch the playing surface. These are nice heavy pieces. The stand that they set on is pretty nice. It would be super nice if it were actually more of a stone rather than resin. However, there is a lot of detail in it and it really is a fun piece. It definitely adds to the dragon theme of the chess set. The dragon chess pieces are also extremely detailed with a good bit of heft. As a new and old player (new to the game with failing older eyes) the pieces are fun but my inexperience with the pieces makes them a bit difficult to determine which piece is which. Regular chess set pieces are extremely clear in their differences. Apparently all dragons look the same to me, lol. A better player would not have this issue though. This would not stop me from purchasing this item again as a gift. It is a beautiful set. I am uploading a close up of the pieces that I snagged from online so that you can see what I am referring to.
The playing surface is glass. Smooth on one side and the squares etched on the other. It is about 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick. It is sturdy but the pieces are rather heavy and might crack it if they get tipped over. I would say to be sure this is setting on a stable table. The entire things is quite heavy as well.
It is a good quality chess set and for chess players looking for a fantasy board, it is a good gift quality set. This is displayed on a pub table which is also part of an anniversary gift for my husband. See my reviews if you want to know which pub table I got for this. It looks very, very nice. I am confident that he will like this even more than I do.
As an aside, my two sons are also anxious to play with this set after their dad gets it. I am told by all of the males in the household that "dragons are always more fun! DUH!!"
Update: after husband received the gift
He loves it. The kids love it. It is going to become the centerpiece in our man cave/home pub area. It was fun to see him receive this and I would not hesitate to recommend it as a gift for others.
Best dragon chess art imho
by Dagnabit (4 out of 5 stars)

The pros: Dragons, 12 different pieces of dragon art (while traditional chess has 6 different pieces of "art") Most of the art is well detailed. serious dragon- not cartoonish. most dragons hold symbols to identify them, knights have shields, bishops have crosses. Rooks are (siege) towers with dragons.
Cons: Details of the heads are not as good as the rest of the art (it is like the artist gave up on the most important part) Many pieces look similar, the gold queen dragon has nothing to identify her,(the other royal dragons do, silver king has ram horns, silver queen has an egg(?) and gold king has a phallic item). The base is silly, would have rather has a storage case.
The pieces are very heavy and nice, but this set is better for looks than ...

The chess pieces are hard to tell apart, especially from behind. The glass does not stay on the base and you can't have the base on an uneven surface or the glass will fall off/pieces will fall. After about 2 months, we threw the base away as it just didn't hold the glass. The pieces are very heavy and nice, but this set is better for looks than for usage.
Be aware not as durable as it looks!

Be wary when buying this item. The price suggests a quality product. I unboxed it and one of the kings was not properly identified. I thought it was an extra rook. Then a bishop fell off the table and immediately broke in half. The metal figures are fragile as glass be careful with them. I was also disappointed that there was no type of strogare for the game pieces. You you figure with a chess set this expensive it would hold up to every day situations. The gold figure is supposed to be the king which doesn't seem clearly identifiable. The bishop of the left is the one that broke.

This is an absolutely beautiful chess board. The base is phenomenal. It bends slightly if put on an uneven surface so as to make sure that the glass remains stable and flat against the base posts. In other words, the posts will rise or lower a little so you always have an even stable board to play on.
Then there are the pieces. These are incredible. The level of detail is fantastic. my kids and I can stare at them all day. The weight of each piece is great. Love the pieces.
My only concern is the painted glass board. It seems that over time, the white squares may get scratched. With 3 little ones learning to play, this is a good possibility for me but that's my issue not yours. I do wish the felt on the bottom of the pieces was a little bit bigger in circumference to reduce the metal on glass issues.
I highly recommended the Dragon Chess Set. It is awesome.
Mismatched Pieces (Packing error, I imagine)

Nicely designed, and might have merited 5 stars... if they had sent all of the correct pieces. Instead I got the package, opened it up, and discovered instead of a King and Queen on each side, the pewter finish (silver) side had two queens. I'm all for marriage equality, even in the monarchy, but it's hard to play a game of chess when there's no king to target.

The item is legit my boyfriend loves it! Well worth the money. But they didn't send me a list of the names of the dragon pieces to identify their character on the chess board I mean if you know chess then u know the peices but the peices are bery different from a regular chess board. For someone who doesnt know how to play this but loves the theme of the board would need that to effectively use thier product and enjoy it. Other than that we do love it and i wouldnt mind purchasing one for myself however i do have to wait a while for that!
Pieces could use some work

I play chess fairly often and I was very impressed with this board. It is much much heavier and detailed then I was expecting. My biggest complaint is that the king and queen pieces are identical. This could just be my OCD but it drives me crazy when we're playing and they start being moved around the board, sometimes we both forget which is which.

My order came in a box, inside a box, that was inside a box with loads of this brown packing paper to keep it from sliding around. i opened it up and looked at the first few items and they look exactly like the picture shown and are not broken! i didn't open the whole thing as that would have destroyed the packaging, and this was a gift for my best friend. I know he'll love it!

This is beautiful, the pieces are nice and heavy. The only thing I wish it had was a piece indicator. You definitely know which pieces are the pawns, but the rest can kind of go either way.
