Bought this as an anniversary gift for my boyfriend, and he absolutely loved it! The pieces are beautiful and have a really great weight to them. The board is well made as well. Was considering the 18" and the 23", and the 18" is a great size. Highly recommend. Also, customer service was so helpful!
