SO FUN. We love the wobble. And really well-made too. Solid, heavy, smooth weighted bottoms... Only problem is the cat likes them too and keeps batting them to make them wobble.

Got this for my husband on our anniversary and we both love it. Very original, easy to play with and looks great. I love how the pieces wobble like crazy when you move the board but don't fall off:)
Such a beautiful chess set. Tracked it down after seeing it in a Chicago hotel lobby. Great for teaching young children.
my daughter and i enjoy playing with the new chess set more often because she likes the new set's unique layout and shapes. the set blends well with modern furniture. a little bit costly but worth it due to its uncommon style.
I wanted a unique and beautiful chess set for myself after learning to play on a soapstone set my parents bought in Japan. This was pricey but worth it. It's beautiful to look at and it's made well. You have to get the pieces in just right or they lean.

I have been looking for a long time for a modern chess set in which you could actually identify the pieces-I don't like the ones where the kings don't look like kings, etc. This is just great, so pretty and simple, with beautiful craftsmanship to the wood. I first thought that the "wobble" might be a bit silly, but it so functional! Playing with my kids, and two pets, it comes in so handy that the set can get knocked, but you don't lose your game. Very nice packaging, although be very careful when removing the pieces from the foam...one of my kings little cross snapped off, but Uncommon Goods replaced it right away with no problem. I love this set, and anticipate having it out forever!
The product was beatufiful. Great for the person who has everything. It makes for a great conversation piece, perfect for an office.
This chess board is definitely creative. I was looking for something unique but functional. When my boyfriend opened the package, he loved the design. I did think that the darker wood would be a few shades darker than it really was, but I can get over that easily.
Had some water works or spots on the board. Nice product - but not the quality I would expect for the price. Needs a little more attention paid to the detail.
