Return Policy

Extended Return Policy for Christmas

We understand that sometimes a Christmas present is unwanted and needs to be returned for an exchange or full refund. Many retailers offer a generous 30-day returns policy which is good enough for most occasions, but not for buying an early Christmas present.

Therefore, Lion Chess is pleased to announce that you can buy your Christmas presents from us now and in case they are no longer needed or wanted, you can return them by 31st of January 2015.

Please note: We can only accept returns for unused products and products must be in as-new condition without any signs of wear and tear. In case of our Matador products, we can not accept returns if the box has been taken out from their plastic wrap. Thank you for your understanding.


We do hope that our website is informative and provides pictures with good enough details to give you a great shopping experience and you know what you get before your order arrives. But we also understand that sometimes you wish to return a product to us. For added peace of mind we offer you a 30-day return guarantee. And no questions asked (though we appreciate any feedback from you). Simply notify us of your intention to return an item to us within 30 days after purchase and we will provide you with instructions of how to return the goods back to us.

Please note: If you return a product to us simply because it's no longer wanted you are responsible for the return postage to us. We recommend using a tracked service for higher value items and to keep proof of postage until the refund has been issued to you.

If an item arrives damaged, we will of course re-imburse you for the return postage. In case an individual chess figure arrives damaged, please let us know of it and we are often able to send you a replacement, free of charge. There is no need for you to return an entire chess set if only a single piece is damaged.

Return Service
Especially for bigger items, sending a big and heavy box back via your local post office could get expensive and we understand that you don't want to pay of what seems a small fortune to send an unwanted item back. Simply inform us of your intention to return an item to us and we can provide you with alternative shipping arrangements, often cheaper than Royal Mail, and it could even be collected from your doorstep!
