Oversized Chess Pieces for Outdoors

My whole family is crazy about chess and even I learned how to play this game from my grandfather. We all think it is very clever and stimulates the brain. So when we went to a villa to spend the holiday and saw a black and white checkered stone square in the patio we couldn’t help thinking about chess. It looked like the perfect board for a game of chess, even if the size was a bit different from what we normally use, but it seemed amazing to think you could use oversized chess pieces. I was curious enough to look for some on the Internet and, of course, I did find what I hoped. Actually I found more versions – huge chess pieces made of stone, plastic or wood.

Of course the price varies depending on the size and material of the chess pieces. But they are perfect and look great. You will love playing chess with pieces the size of a man on a huge board that can be either made of stone, plastic or maybe a cloth painted in black and white squares. Or you could simple use them as ornaments for your patio , garden or for the front of your house. You can purchase these items on specialized online stores and even the Amazon.
