The finished surfaces throughout are smooth to the touch. All corners line up nicely. The playing area is smooth and nicely designed. All pieces work perfectly and smoothly. The pieces are are a good size and easy to use/move.
The checkers are wooden and i find the wood grain gives just enough texture to make them easy to grip and pick up. The dice are decent. Though the boxes are slightly smaller than what i normally use, as are the dice.
Wooden case itself is beautiful with smooth sides, i'm not worried about splinters. Board closes nicely on brass hinges and stays closed with magnets. The tokens feel nice, and the super easy to store or carry around.

Hitting the ramps consistently is surprisingly challenging. There are 2 ramps which require skill to hit consistently, there's 2 hidden tunnels, and 4 scoring targets. It has an open top so the metal balls can escape--just fyi.
The game box arrived ripped and punctured. The balls pose a serious safety hazard for younger siblings and they stand zero chance of staying with the game.
