Editorial Reviews:

The House of Staunton is proud to introduce one of the World's finest Plastic Chessmen - The Hastings Series Plastic Chessmen. Chessmen with Attitude! The distinctive feature of this set is our newest Knight design. The superb detail on this beast is simply breathtaking!

This full-tournament sized set features a 3.875" King, weighs an impressive 42 ounces and includes 4 Queens (the additional 2 Queens are not included in the weight calculation.) The design and feel of these Chessmen make them ideal for both Tournament and Rapid Play (Blitz) Chess. As with all House of Staunton Chessmen, they exemplify the perfect combination of beauty and functionality. The design, quality and craftsmanship of this set is UNMATCHED by any set of Chessmen in its price range. Nothing even comes close!

These Chessmen are new and each set consists of 34 Chessmen, 17 light and 17 dark (including the two additional Queens.)

ALL HOUSE OF STAUNTON PLASTIC CHESSMEN ARE RECOMMENDED FOR US CHESS FEDERATION TOURNAMENT PLAY!

Indulge yourself - Own a legend!

Summary: buy it
Comment: I just purchased this set. It arrived yesterday. If you are looking for a very good set to use. This is it. The pieces are weighted nicely. The set looks and feels great. Can't beat the $20.00 price!!! delivery charges are a little steep, but they are on everything nowadays. you even get a free vinyl chess board. I highly recommend this set.

Summary: Great Set. Nice color. (red)
Comment: Ordered on Sunday - arrived on Thursday. Quick shipment.
This is my first "real" set. I've usually used smaller sets made of wood, marble, plastic.
This set has a nice & wide base and includes a nice roll-up board that has a good size for these pieces.
The pieces are weighted, yet aren't too heavy. They definitely shouldn't topple over accidentally, but are not cumbersome to move.
The Knights are exquisite, very detailed, with nostrils flared open as if in the moment of attack.
The set comes with an extra Queen of each color (nice touch) and the red set is more of a wine/maroon color which I like. I was expecting a more vivid red, but this color is a bit subtle and seems to have a somewhat serious tone to it.
The Kings are pretty tall & easy to pickup as are all of the pieces. With the wide base, all have ample room between pieces to allow easy usage.
All in all, a very nice set at a great price (even including the somewhat high shipping price)

Summary: Piece are very nice - surprised the board was roll up vinyl
Comment: The pieces are very nice. Just the right amount of heft to them.

The board is annotated as well, which is a nice touch for those that are learning the notation. I was surprised it was vinyl and rolled up, but that is not a major concern for me.

Summary: Best knight ever!!
Comment: The knight is what really sets this set apart from the rest, it is simply fantastic! The weight, feel and playability of this set are excellent, and of the 25+ sets I own this is my favorite and most often reached for!
For this price, you certainly cannot go wrong. Quality is great!
