As a child pressman checker/chess/backgammon boards were all over. They were good little starter sets and were made just as well as other kids games. Alas this is no longer the case. Here are my problems with it:
- The box it comes in is to thin and it has those cardboard sharp edges. - The game board is way thinner than the old ones and seems like slightly thicker than poster board (like another reviewer said). I looks like they printed a sheet with the squares on it and then glued it to the cardboard. Cheap, cheap. - The checkers are cheaper plastic and not as substantial. They are easily knocked around. - The Chess pieces were ok and again not substantial so easily knocked over. My set was incomplete. I was missing a black knight and had an extra bishop. - The board is not slippery so the pieces do not slide nicely. - The board and pieces are made in China. Not that China makes all bad things, but it appears they bid this out to the...
I bought this mainly for the Checkers, and Chess as I have no idea how to play backgammon. My only complaint is the board folds into four instead of half. It does get annoying because playing checkers you tend to slide your pieces and they get caught in the crevices. The pieces themselves are what you might expect for an 8 dollar product.
