The set comes with free extra queens for effortless pawn promotion. All chess pieces are expertly carved and triple weighted for fantastic hand-feel and a very nice thud on the wooden chess board. King, Queens, Bishops, Rooks and Pawns have unique collar rings and thick green felts, which precisely envelops the base for smooth movement on the chess board.
