lovely looking but weak magnets

A very good looking set. Great size for playing along while reading a chess book. I wish however that the magnets were stronger. I recall as a kid I had a magnetic set and the board was a thin sheet of steel. Those pieces "stuck" like crazy. This board is wooden-like finish so it is magnetic but nowhere near the strength I would have liked. Good for minor bumps/tilts.
Overall a very nice set.
