Review for ambassador european chess board

Price was $52.97. The folding board is delicate, but beautiful. Don't use it for speed chess. Close inspection reveals it to be a cheaply-made assembly-line product, but it sure looks fabulous. Hats off to the manufacturer for making a cheaply-made product look so good. The included pieces are too large for the board and require a board with 2. 5-inch squares. Buy a set of staunton 6 chess pieces from the same manufacturer, wegiel in poland, and you'll be happy. Staunton 7 pieces might be even better. I don't have a set of those. . I got this set for about $45 u. S. , and at that price, it was a fabulous bargain. Beware of sellers trying to charge over $100 for this set. I've seen several.

Peices are very detailed, get compliments from everyone who see it, even if they don t play chess. Love the fact it isn t from china like everything else now days. Board itself is great and i leave it out in one position ready for a game. The inside of the board is cheap velvet like vinyl molds for peices and not impressive.

Wegiel Ambassador European Chess Board Game Review (ambassador european chess set)

Very nicely made set with a hand crafted look. Inside of case could be better quality, but it is functional and looks alright. Board itself is plenty thick, at minimum 1/8 inch, with no flex unless you are planning to use it as a chair. I have no idea what the guy was smoking that claimed it was paper thin. I've personally never seen 1/8 inch thick paper. -N. Rochelle

I am thrilled to the max this is such a beautiful chess set, and praise god i can see the players. They are so well detailed, and the board is nothing short of a work of art. If you love chess this is a must. Oh! and by the way i bought one of the sets that was on special, still can't find anything wrong with it other than one of the little brass latches needs some attention. Friends this board is so pretty i'm planning on fixing a table so i can leave it set up all the time. Thank you for a wonderful product and super service. . Jim the streetpreacher.

The detail work is just what i imagined with each piece being individual either with color or etching. This is a very large set, the board is 21 in and the prices are perfect size, i love that the king and queen totally different and very detailed. The one thing that could be better is the peices need more weight, they seem a little light especially with how big they are. I also think that if you know someone with a disability or poor eyesight that this set would be perfect. I also want to add that i received this in 3 days and i live in a rural area. I added a few pictures because looking a real life pics helped me with my decision."

I made a box-hockey table for my kids for christmas. These checkers are used for the puck and you use a popsicle stick to shoot with. They work awesome and it's a game that i used to play a lot as a child. There were a lot of good times had playing this game, and now i can pass that along to my kids. They are made from a quality wood material and are very durable. The shipping time was very fast and i only had to wait a few days before getting them.

These 1. 25 wood checkers are the perfect pieces to rekindle your passion for the game. The beautiful hand carved wood pieces add a classic feel to a fun game. Challenge your friends and family and prepare for hours of entertainment.

Finish on these is clearly production line. These advertise that they are cut to nestle together to make kings. But the finish is so slippery that unless you firmly hold both, the top will fall off the king when moved. I had to glue on a felt base to help keep them in place. -Notice from I.

- Q. WadeThe pieces were what i expected. A very good set for the price. I believe next set i will go for a larger set to go with the chess board my grandson has his father made him. Thank you. Jerry

These are very nice wooden checker pieces that are not an eyesore nor anything special, either - plain but works. The pieces are very light, possibly due to soft wood being used. The paper box does not have a cover top, which would have been excellent. I am using these on a 15 x 15 board (as pictured). Overall, an appropriately priced set.

The F.A.Q. for wegiel ambassador european chess board game

I painstakingly reviewed many boards before deciding to buy this one. This was a gift for my younger cousins, i hoped the wow factor would get them excited about learning the game. I never even saw it, but they sent me pics and it looked good. Even with the few bad reviews, it's like another reviewer said, for the price you are getting a pretty nice board. Who cares if the plastic spray felt insert is cheap. Who cares if the pieces aren't very heavy. It's the board and pieces which really stand out. Spend 200 if you want perfection.

A number of questions have been asked here.


(0) Question: Does this have storage?

(1) Question: Are there 2 extra queens?

(2) Question: Many complaints about the weight of the pieces. can holes be drilled to insert screws for weight?

(3) Question: Did it come in the authentic wegiel made in poland box? is it the mohagony color the ambassador set comes in, or is it a more dull brown as pictured?

(4) Question: Are these piceces wighted ?

(5) Question: Is there a case available to protect the board while traveling?

(6) Question: Are these pieces weighted and is there extra queens?

(7) Question: Are the pieces really that light in weight? would this board be superior than the ambassador since i'm seeing that the pieces are weighted in their specification? - consul chess set and board

(note) Question: where/how to get Wegiel (manufacturer's brand) accessories & similiar Wegiel's products

Highest quality. Larger board and pieces than i'd expected. Great detail in construction of pieces, especially noticeable on the white pieces. Display quality. Green felt under pieces is a nice touch. . Top quality: no blemishes in wood or finish. . Cons: i don't understand why this set was made to be a fold-up. It's too big to be portable. I would have preferred a solid chess board.

Best wegiel ambassador european chess board game (toys and games) in review

There seems to be many sizes of the same board and pieces and i made sure that i am ordering the 'ambassador' model for the size of board and pieces i wanted. The ambassador model comes with really good size chess pieces and the they are really well made, lovey to look. Kids love to play with his chess board. The board itself is very well crafted. Glad to buy this on sale for a very decent price. Chess lovers will enjoy this board and pieces. Pieces too are of a good weight. This item is impressive. The pictures make you feel that green felt to store the pieces are sturdy, but i was surprised that the green housing to store the pieces is a very thin plastic (sort of) material. Its flimsy as well and the item i received had the green felt looking slots for the pieces broken in the corners. I didn't care to return as i feel that even if that breaks i will throw away that and use the folding board for storing the pieces. I must say that i liked the board and did choose to buy as it had nice slots for storing the pieces, which kids love to put back after they are done, but the broken plastic did not make me return the product (or exchange) as the important parts (board and pieces) are so lovely. This is a very strong chessboard, nicely crafted pieces of very good size (some might even say they are really big).

Q. Heidi, Medway says

I purchased this as a 5th anniversary present (wood) for my husband. He was thrilled with the gift, and we were both pleasantly surprised by the quality and detail of the chess board, which appears to be hand-burned with decorative flourishes in addition to the very nice inlays for the squares. It comes with letters and numbers inlaid as well, and really looks very lovely on the coffee table where it has been placed since it was received last month. Furthermore, my three year old has played with it non-stop, and it has held up (pieces included, which i was worried about) remarkably well to the rough play of a young child. I only have two small complaints about this product, and they are that the flimsy plastic insert that holds the chess pieces when the board is folded away is barely flocked and really doesn't feel like it will last a year without cracking and tearing, so i wish they had made it thicker and stronger and out of a nicer material. The second regret is that the pieces themselves, while nicely carved and very detailed, are remarkably light and tend to skid around the board much easier than i would wish. I knew they weren't weighted when i purchased the board, but i can't help regretting it now that i've actually played with it a bit. Nevertheless, i think i would still make this purchase if i had it to do over again, and maybe someday i will invest in some of those outrageously expensive staunton, weighted tournament chess pieces w/ wood box to replace these. I therefore tentatively recommend this very attractive product.

P. Ruff, Oldham

I bought it for $47 on sale. It was worth it then, but at the $65 current price, it becomes a bit questionable. . Anyway, this is an overall fantastic chess set. It is huge! the online pictures do not do it justice. It take up my entire coffee table! as such, it is not designed and is not conducive to on-the-go play. . The board and pieces are both large and easily distinguishable. The king and queen pieces are particularly fancy. Keep in mind, this is not magnetic. The felt on the bottom of the pieces work well but is prone to coming off. Be careful with it, or just glue it back on if it comes off. . The main gripe (however, for the price, it is not enough of a gripe to take off a star) is the board - the board thickness, to be specific. The aesthetic of the board is awesome! the checkering is vivid and clear! however, the material is thin, as noted in other reviews. Placing a piece down on a square makes a sound reminiscent of thin, cheap wood. It sounds hollow (i mean, the board is hollow - it folds and the pieces fit inside it - but this unpleasant sound would be significantly mitigated with slightly thicker material). . In conclusion, i'm glad i bought it! it was worth it! . . But for $65? i'd want my criticisms addressed before shelling out that kind of cash.

Z. Megan, Southampton says

Bought this for my brother for christmas, he loves it, i love it, it's super pretty and the fact that it is it's own case and each of the pieces has its own little molded space inside is genius. Thought it was a little expensive, but after receiving it realized it was worth the price.

B. Wade, Bournemouth

I wanted a quality wood set to play with my kids. I looked at so many options and finally decided on this one. The price was steep but the product seems durable and good quality. The details in the set are great. We like playing on this set and i'm happy with my purchase.

J. Susana, Newcastle upon Tyne says

I love it. It's probably not for tournaments but it's more for home. It looks and feels warm. The large size makes it feel more fun and relaxing. Please see the photos. In some photos the quarter looks more like a nickel but i used a quarter coin for a reference in all of the photos. .  board - i was concerned how uneven and flimsy the board will be after reading a lot of feedback, but this is a really well made board. The top board piece might be about 1/8 inch thick. See the photos taken from both sides. One side doesn't fit as well as the other but it doesn't bother me. The back green pieces inside the board are not felt. They're made with flimsy plastic piece like the inside of a box for chocolate. The thickness is probably about that of the felt pieces on the bottom of the chess pieces. Pieces - i was curious how thick the bottom felt on each piece and how well they're attached to the shape of the bottoms. The pieces are not weighted but since they're large, they don't get knocked off easily so they don't bother me. They're all well made too.

K. Finch, Hampshire

This set is absolutely beautiful and i have received many comments about how unique it is. The board itself is large and richly colored. The only things that would make it better are:. - include a chart for board setup (for folks who are new to chess). - a carry bag or case for the board (other than the box it came in). The board is so beautiful i'd hate to scratch it in transport. - a sturdier 'underside' for the pieces, or perhaps a pull out drawer. Currently the pieces are replaced into a thin felt covered plastic mold and then the board is folded in half and latched closed. . But i'm not knocking it down a star for any of that. The description was clear and i received exactly what was described and paid for, and am incredibly happy with this set.

L. Anonymous, Vermont says

This is easily the most awesome product i have ever ordered from online store. I ordered from south africa and the package arrived ten days before the estimated shipping date. I was a bit concerned that something might have broken in transit. The set arrived in a huge, dented brown box and i almost had a heart attack (sending it back from sa would've cost a lot). However, with the set inside supported with crumpled paper, it turned out to be perfect. . The handmade pieces are awesome, the fold-up board is awesome, the box it came in is awesome and the quality is also awesome for the price. The pieces are not weighted and they are lightish. They tend to slide if they are moved too fast (in other words not suited for blitz games), but they are handcrafted from solid wood and do have enough weight for a casual, untimed game at home. The board and pieces are huge and this set can be displayed in your living room with confidence. The craftsmanship is something to behold and catches the eye immediately. . It has to be said, though: the felt storage inside the box wasn't made to last, and i will probably have something custom made later on to replace it. As another reviewer pointed out, some of the sellers charge up to and above $100 for this product. I got this one from online store's own continental import & export for about $55. They go fast, but i'd rather wait for online store to stock up than pay $100 or more. . I'm very happy with this set. As already said, the pieces are not weighted, but they sure are big enough to make up for it. You'd probably not use this set at your club or for tournaments, but it's perfect for home or a game in the park.

J. Cindy, Lincolnshire

Received this today. I m very impressed with this set. Very nice detail, everything seems to be done well. And the box says made without child labor . Ok. Some people complain about the weight of the pieces. I have no problems unless i m playing outside in a hurricane. My only nitpick would be the flimsy storage liner material. For such a nice set you d think they d improve on that. But then, for the price i m happy the quality is in the board and chessmen. I d buy this again as a gift.

G. Julie, Connecticut says

Note: the images uploaded via "i. Steiner" are for the "wegiel xl royal handcrafted wooden chess maple wood" (currently $79. 99 here on online store) chess set, not the "ambasador" (the name of this set, as it appears on the packaging, only has 1 "s") set featured on this page. So make sure you're looking at/purchasing the set you really want. . My "ambasador" set arrived right on time, and in perfect condition. I knew the size was 20 x 20, but actually pulling it out of the box and checking out the pieces is quite impressive. It looks great, like something that may have been handed down by your father or grandfather. The colors are light enough, and with low enough contrast, that long periods of looking at the board won't strain the eyes. . I agree with some of the other reviews that it would have been nice for the pieces to be weighted a little bit, but i haven't had any issues during play. And one of the other reviews mentioned putting washers on the bottom of the pieces with an additional layer of felt, which i think would be easy enough to do if you really didn't like the weight of the pieces. Like i said though, it hasn't been an issue for me. . As you can see from one of my attached images, the playable area of the squares is almost exactly 2". So keep that in mind if you plan on buying any other pieces for other games (like checkers pieces, etc. ). . On a side note, i did purchased a set of the "checkers pieces in black and natural wood - 1. 5 in. Diameter" here on online store. They are a perfect fit and look for this board.

I'm not a professional but fairly good at game. And ordered this cause my buddy has gotten into chess and i haven't played in years. So far i love it. No complaints it's bigger than i expected which is awesome. It says it's hand made and if that's the case that's what i wanted. There is a few blemishes. Which i love that. I don't want it to look machine built. I enjoy buying stuff that people built with there hands. Adds character.

It's an absolutely beautiful set - bought for my husband, the chess lover, as a b-day gift. Only complaint is that the inside is made of an egg-carton like styrofoam material with a velvety covering. I expected that it would hold the pieces in place, as there's a slot carved out for each game piece; however, unless you hold the game board completely level, all of the pieces tumble out of their spots and fall into each other, which i fear will make them chip each other.

 ambassador european chess board game i love chess! i am no good at it but i sure love it. When i saw the exquisite detail in the pieces of this game as well as the board and size, i knew i had to get it! in my video i go through the whole unboxing and also answer numerous questions that people are asking on online store about this product. I shot video of the pieces up close so you can see the fantastic detail of the product. I love this chess set! i do wish that it came with a carrying case to tote it around and maybe wish the pieces were a little more heavy. But, i am totally happy with the purchase. :) i believe it is worth the price.
