The second edition of this difficult set. I really didn’t care for the way the first one came out and got the chance for a do-over recently.
This version is much stronger and has about 75 less pieces in the ‘pieces’. I changed the queen to better reflect the story and may make a 1” nutcracker for her to hold in her hands. The set plays well. The board has 2.5” squares and probable could have used 2.75 or 3” squares.
I prefer to carve when I make these things…this set has carving, turning, manufacturing, production, drawing, I really don’t like to make it, but it looks VERY cool in person!
