So it was my birthday recently, and as the known chess player in my family, I received the 2020 Battle for the White House Chess Set.
And I have to tell you I am unimpressed.
The pieces are not pewter they are molded plastic with cheap decal's glued on.
The board it originally came with was a fold up piece of cardboard. So my gift giver upgraded the package to the wooden board..(They sent both)
The wooden board would be a disgrace to any craftsmen.. If there is a wood cheaper and lighter than balsa, this company managed to find it..
To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if it was laminated bamboo..
The set has two Joe Bidens, as when they minted it no one thought the daft basterd would even run, let alone be a candidate, so they used his persona
for another one of the previous vice presidents as well.
After I got the set I had to order the democratic nominees kamala and Joe to replace the placeholder podiums that came with the original. It took an
entire month and they sent three orders, I sent the two extra orders or four extra pieces back..
Now please don't get me wrong.. it's always always and forever the thought that counts..
I have nothing but appreciation for the thought and the gift..
But as a product I give it a resounding one of five heads of meat.
This is in jokes because I'm not actually mad my novelty chess set was cheaply made. I just thought the entire debacle was representative of the
entire year and election as a whole.
Our very own Victorvondoom,is one badass chess player.. who humbled me in multiple pm games..
