My SquareOff Kingdom Set finally arrived after a long wait since I initially joined the kickstarter.  I have to say it is fantastic and exceeds my expectations for quality.  The packaging was excellent and protected everything well during shipment.  The build quality is very good (time will tell if everything keeps working but so far I am impressed).

 

The board looks great.  It stays flat with no noticeable movement during game play.  Very nice finish. It’s is about the size of a roll up “analysis” board - not as big as a tournament set but certainly big enough to enjoy playing on.  The rosewood pieces look good and feel good when playing.

 

To move you lift and touch the piece to its starting square and then touch the piece to its destination square.  Then you hear a bit of a “whir” and the machine makes the opponent’s move.  If a piece is captured it moves it to the side of the board first and then moves the new piece to the square.  It moves relatively quickly so it doesn’t seem slow - but you won’t be playing bullet or blitz probably tongue.png

 

Strongly recommend it for anyone that was on the fence.  I’ve played against the computer (Stockfish I think) and I’ve played several games against humans as well.  Enjoy the photos and video.
