This Chinese checkers set is the loveliest one that I have ever seen. I like that it has a nice weight to it. Wonderfully made and packaged very securely!

"This is a beautifully designed and crafted set!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I originally ordered it for my son and daughter-in-law, but will order a second one for them... I cant part with it! The square tile itself is lovely, and I have it on display in my dining room. The little pieces, (Xs and Os) need a little container to match the quality of the set... Ive got mine currently in a tiny hand-made ceramic bowl, stowed in a drawer, but it would be ideal for them to fit into a tiny box made of onyx (or wood), that could sit on top of the little square tile... Dont you think? I looked through my own extensive collection of tiny hand-made boxes, and didnt have one. (Im an artist and a designer who can not stop designing!)
