I'm new to chess and this forum. I've purchased a few books for beginners but really need to obtain full chess set to proceed further.
As much as I'd like a high-quality vintage wooden set and board, it seems to me I'd be better served at this stage by buying a nice quality plastic set with the algebraic notation on the board for the ranks and files. I'm not seeking rock-bottom cheap pieces and a flimsy board. Nor do I think it wise for me to purchase an expensive set at this time. Any thoughts on this review recroompick.com/best-chess-sets/? Grandmaster Chess Set from The House of Staunton looks attractive to me.
Can the members provide some recommendations?
Thanks in advance.
lolol..get a life. real new players don't worry about getting a pretty set to put on their mantle-piece.
You are advertising.
bunyip, thanks for your opinion.
I just like when things look unusual and hope to hear any interesting suggestions, which helps me to decorate my playroom
But @serj12 you were a member from 3 Aug 2017.
You noticed that as well ?
Yes, I created my account so far, but then loose interest in the game now gained it again.
I wonder, why it's bothering you guys?
You said new to chess . But its 2 years now that you joined.
That makes you a liar.
Should we report her @bunyip ?
