This is a great little board. It isn't too small and not too large. The fact it folds up closed is a great space saver. I don't have to leave it laying out all the time. The fact that it is magnetic is such a help. You can't accidentally knock the pieces over easily. If the board gets bumped or anything then nothing gets jumbled. You can even flip it upside down and the pieces stay exactly where they were. Great for the car.
