What happened with this set is now a matter of record. Our supplier of over 15 years closed their factory and took our mold with them. Probably melted the $15,000 mold down for scrap! This was over 3 years ago and we have been scrambling to get the set back in production. It's harder than you think to find a reputable factory with our high quality standards to produce such a set. Then make the set so we can still sell you the set at a reasonable price.
This chess set is finally on the boat! The boat left the port on the 24th of January. Typically, the boat takes 2 weeks on the water to get to the port here in Los Angeles. It has taken up to 4 days for the container to get picked off the ship and then the container has to go to a sorting facility and get shipped to our warehouse after it clears customs. We are shooting for the middle of February. It will probably be earlier, but we have had enough disappointments with this thing being produced and shipping. The cool thing is during the downtime of getting the new mold done when they broke it is that we re-designed the box the set comes in. No more plain white corrugated boxes. you will now be getting a box designed specifically for the Ultimate Chess Set. Case quantity for the set is 8 sets/case. Should be in the 15th-18th of Feb. Remember that the pre-orders go out 1st before the wholesale customers.
