Chess is a game for many different levels of play, pitting novice against novice or master against master. This game board is made of solid hardwood ( maple and walnut ) with glass marbles as the chessmen. Each 1" diameter glass marble has a gold imprinted design depicting the playing piece it represents. With the fact that all the pieces look similar, because they are 1" glass marbles, one must study the board during a game a little harder so as not to make any mistakes. It has the ability to be an interior decorative piece as well as the game board. The size is 12 1/2" wide and 15" long, with a hand rubbed natural oil finish.
Not recommended for 3 years of age or younger.
