The board is not flimsy despite it being card board. It's strong enough for pieces to adhere, but they can still be moved easily. It folds up well into the tin and the pieces are magnetic.
The magnetic checker pieces and board are great. Looks & works just as expected. The magnets are especially fun for the kids.
This is because it was so cheaply made, not because it had been used or damaged in shipping. It is total garbage and i can't get a refund for it either!
The board is foldable and the pieces fit into the slots under the board. The elastic loops inside for the pieces are loose enough so it's easy to get the pieces in and out. The board folds nicely into a box that holds the pieces inside snug.
The pieces have the right shape (similar to staunton) and are of good size and construction. None of my pieces were crooked or oddly shaped as mentioned in some of the other reviews. But this is great and the pieces are nicely crafted.
The ranks and files are stamped with labels for reference. The chess notation on the board definitely helps those who know it when trying to get back into the hobby. The extra queens and markings on the chess board are a great help.
Shape of the bottom of pieces make them imbalanced. The tactile sensation is that of the low end brown hollow interior doors. The chess board folds in half but the lines weren't exact.
Purchased this board only because of fast delivery promised. Really not a good purchase.
