Excalibur king arthur is a very light and cheap chess set. Game play was enjoyable until game stopped working, would not turn off, could not move pieces. Not responding to input via * and not performing the way instructions say it should.
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.
