Rated 5 out of 5 by Sosew from Love these!These are the best set of checkers we have ever had, Our family loves the games and I have searched for sets better than plastic pieces and cardboard. These are nice enough to be left out, as was the intention. Big enough pieces for little hands but nice enough that they don't appear too toyish (not a word, I know).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Little Hiccups from Great set to complement the Chunky Chess PiecesI bought this set to go with the Chunky Chess Pieces which do not come with a board. The board in this set works perfectly with the chess pieces. I really like that the board is one sturdy piece of wood rather than a folded piece of cardboard like most chess/checker boards for kids. This will definitely last a long time. The checkers in this set are a good size and nicely painted, however, as others have mentioned the stain/paint smell is very strong. It's been over two months since my daughter received this set for Christmas and the smell is still there, although it has definitely improved. I imagine that with a little more time the smell will go away completely. My kids have been very happy with this set so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElmMom from Very nice checkers setThis is way nicer of a set than the normal board game you would buy at a big box store. Yes, more expensive, but a set you'll have forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amber1 from BeautifulI'm very happy with the quality of this product. The board and game pieces are stained beautifully, but that brings me to my one complaint, which is that the smell of the stain is overpowering. My kids didn't want anything to do with it when it was first opened, and it smelled up my small kitchen. However, as the days have gone by, the smell is lessening, although not gone by any means. We've been able to play with it and I'm expecting that the smell will continue to lessen as it gets aired out. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mamaofgamelover from SMELLY!Alright-- so I read the reviews about the paint smell and thought maybe it would bug us but most likely it would air out. NO. The smell is so strong my husband put it back in the box and wouldn't let my 5 year old touch it. Our house smelled like paint thinner/stain. Very cool checkers kit though... would have loved it.. returned it.
