There are two extra queens of each color to help you deal with pawns that have evolved. The magnets are strong enough to hold the pieces in place during play.
The board is actual wood - i think a thin laminate, but still better than plastic. Each piece has a place in the foam insert to keep them from rattling around.
The checkers pieces don't fit well inside and can cause a bump when using the board. Very cheaply made and glued together for the price.
This is probably the nicest quality game i have ever bought. Great for people who love a strategy game without the difficulty level like chess or go. Board is durable but smaller than i imagined.
It says it is for children 6mo and up.
Mostly unreliable reviews. Do more research before proceeding
