Great surprise for my husband's birthday. The stock market game dates from the 1960s. The goal is to be the first player to reach the winning monetary total.
Very good detail for a smaller magnetic wooden set, expecially on the knights. Comes with an extra pawn, queen, and pair of knights for each color.
The only downside is that it has a strong wood finish and shellac smell when you first receive it. But a few days on your porch or garage, and the strong smell goes away. It is the kind of fancy board that should be well cared for.
As these days they only apply a matte varnish, all imperfections in the wood are apparent on a dull table. What bothers me the most is the fact that they don't apply lacquer on the surface of the board.
