The chess and checker pieces are smaller than standard, but it doesn't bother me. The chinese checkers has real glass marbles which is hard to find in a multi-use set. This gives us a variety of options put together nicely in one container.
It's pretty easy to learn due to it’s simplicity. This is a game you'll be thinking about and quoting long after you're done playing it. Bonus points if the game won't get boring/predictable after a few times.
