Well made product
This review is from: Hand-Made Wooden 3D Chinese Chess
Pros: all the wood pieces are glued together well, also they have the markings for each unit on the base on the front as well as the back if you have a hard time figuring which piece is which. I liked that the board closes completely and snugly holds all the pieces in place in the trays.
Cons: The river is too wide, making it hard to figure out where the horse (knight) will land after crossing it. In most chess sets, the river has identical spacing with the other squares. That's the reason for the 4-star rather than 5 star. The chariot (car, tank, rook) sticks out a bit when placed in the tray so be careful when storing, but that's to be expected.
Other Thoughts: Overall a good quality set, both sides have completely different markings, whereas in many sets I've seen duplicate chariots, horses, cannon (or combinations of).
