If you like dragons and chess, your going to love this chess set. The board is glass and has four castle corner holders that life the board a couple inches off of the ground. All the pieces have a cloth bottom so it very smooth when the pieces are moved across the glass board. Each of the pawns is a cool looking dragon. The rooks are castle towers with a dragon crawling up the wall. The bishops are wizards with a dragon standing next to them. The knights are riding dragons. Finally, the king and queen both also have dragons standing next to them. The pieces are gold and black-silver instead of the traditional black and white. This chess set look very cool. The pieces, if dropped from more than two feet, will break so be careful. The pieces aren’t fragile but can’t be abused. The only thing is that when I was playing a few people, they complained that they got mixed up because the pieces aren’t the traditional shapes. However, I never had trouble telling them apart, maybe because I think they’re all just so cool. I recommend this chess set over any other one just because it looks completely awesome.
