The chess peices are all magnetic as well as the board. Checkers are also well-made and are of solid wood composition though not magnetic.
It folds in half, locking securely with 2 latches. All components are stored inside the game board with a latching closure. They probably had to do this in order to make it close and latch as nicely as it does.
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
Very reliable reviews you can trust
