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.
It's so cool and really entices kids to play and learn. Pieces are durable and board has 2 sides. The pieces are some type of plastic and yea the detail in the painting is what you expect from a mass produced item.
Mostly unreliable reviews. Do more research before proceeding
