Pros and Cons
Pros3

Megnet is neither too strong nor too weak, perfect! The pieces look like metal and the weighting (with magnets) gives them a feel more like metal than plastic. It’s compact when folded, but you can still see the pieces/squares with clarity.

For infrequent travel use it seems pretty ok. Very well made and quick on the shipping. Affordable price and good quality product.

This is not just an awesome little travel set, but the algebraic markings make it great for propping up in bed at night and studying from the vast wealth of youtube tutorials. Its nice and portable.

Cons1

The magnets are not very strong, either. The pieces should be molded with more shallow depressions for the magnets. The colors are practically indistinguishable! It does not work correctly--there is something wrong with the electronics.

Pros2

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.
