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.
This board is just perfectly fine for our visits. It feels great craftsmanship.
Purchased to share with my grandchildren. It teaches strategy and how to aim. Everyone needs to try it and get hooked!
