I purchased this for my grandson who is a national chess champion. He lives in Memphis but was born in Brooklyn, and has never forgotten his NY roots. He loves this set
This product came in a very reasonable time. It is a gift so I'm not sure how much the recipient will like it. It seems to be what was advertised.
NYC Skyline Chess Set arrived on time in perfect condition, and to the delight of my son who constantly studies and appreciates NYC architecture. Very pleased.
Evwerything was fine - order process, delivery time, delivery
The Big Apple
Immortalised in this game of greats, capturing the essence of the early 1900's construction boom and the growth of skyscraper architecture across New York’s skyline.
Contemporary counterparts take place in this edition with some of the city's most recognisable silhouettes; The Guggenheim is the rook, the Flatiron Building is the knight, The Chrysler Building makes for an incredibly powerful bishop, whilst the undeniable grandeur of the Empire State Building makes for the perfect queen and the poignant, impeccable design of One World Trade Tower is the only choice for king in this set.
The monochrome acrylic
Plays a perfect nod to the concrete tones with the world of architecture, whilst allowing the form and detail of each building to be truly appreciated.
The New York Edition
Available in a range of different edits: Acrylic Edition, Premium Metal Edition, The New York City vs London Luxury Edition, Luxury bronze Edition and the Premium Metal Luxury Edition, pitting the Big Apple against another of the architectural greats in our collection.
Looks and feels very stylish with a good weight to the pieces very happy with purchase.
Great for playing and as a centre piece. The pieces are a good weight and hold steady. The only small downfall is the top of some of the buildings are very narrow and one came with a very small dint in. However, saying that it's great!
Lovely gift. Beautifully packaged and rapid delivery.
Will make a stunning display even when not used as a chess set.
