I wanted a chess board with 2" squares that was not minimalist (no borders), or have borders that were too large to fit well on my coffee table. This fit my requirements perfectly. It's very clean and classy, and the playing surface is flawless: all the squares align exactly at the corners, and the pinstriping is extremely well done. The board is also perfectly flat. It does not have protective felt on the underside, but I added 25 cents worth of little adhesive felt pads to the corners and I'm good. This board is a great value for the money.
