I'd suggest sticking with classic sets like the Staunton. If he develops a strong liking for chess, that's mostly what he'll play with in more competitive games. The look doesn't really matter that much. I'm just suggesting sticking with traditional looks rather than the more fancy designs which tend to be more for collectors or chess lovers. Also, it's far easier to recognise the pieces. I love themed sets but they're bugger hard to recognise sometimes!

Play online for a while and gauge his interest. Lichess is awesome and I highly recommend it. In fact, I probably won't play on a physical board again. Too time consuming

You can play chess with bottle tops marked with felt tip pen all the way through to solid gold with diamonds for eyes - your call at the end of the day. What gives you the impression that he'll treasure this substatial set that you're planning for the rest of his life- 6 yr olds can be fairly fickle in my experience. I like the idea of getting him a set appropriate for his age like the Harry Potter and one that is not too expensive should he lose interest. If he does develop a lifetime chess habit, then that first set will be valuable in his eyes whatever it's cost

It was called chess lvl 100. I got it as free from Amazon game of the day so for Amazon devices and also android. I googled it and it is also available on Windows store and therefore probably apple too. It might have renamed itself to crazy bishop

Nothing like knocking a few pawns and queens around.

I have just started playing again after years of not, I play against my 13 year old son, he's getting very good very quickly, think my brain is a little dry and crusty now!

spidersoprano

Yer I play on Chess.com. I'm particularly crap though.

The Malta Open and some other matches held there have quite the prize pot might be why.
