Tournament Roll-up Triple Weighted Chess Set by Jett Games After 3 Months [Story & Review]

Tournament Roll-up Triple Weighted Chess Set - A chess set on a wooden kitchen table.

The Story

I started playing chess when I was a kid. My grandfather would teach me the cool little openings and how to end the game with three or four moves. I started buying chess sets, and over time I realized I wanted a good tournament set. A good friend of mine started talking about triple weighted Staunton pieces and I never even heard of them. I did my basic Amazon research online and found the Tournament Roll-up Triple Weighted Chess Set by Jett Games. I don't know anything about the company, but their set seemed to be the right fit. Let's check out the review.

The Review

The Cons

  • The vinyl board curls up at the ends and stays uneven when it's unrolled. Not a good experience for quick games on the go. 
  • The Staunton pieces and vinyl board are a pretty exact fit for the bag making it a little difficult to put back quickly. 
  • The triple weighted pieces with the roll-up board make the bag a touch heavy to carry around.   

The Pros | Benefits 

  • The triple weighted Staunton pieces feel great to play with. 
  • The green velvet-like material beneath each piece has not peeled off. 
  • The white and black vinyl chess board makes it easy and understandable.   
  • The algebraic notations are in a bold font which makes it easy to read. 
  • The vinyl board hasn't shown any signs of fading. 
  • The Staunton pieces have not chipped, so far very durable. 

Would I repurchase it?

YES

Would I recommend it to a friend?

YES
