wow submitted by Dron.Druheen on August 8, 2015, 7:48pm Amazing !

A must- try for next kids' party submitted by eldous on August 17, 2015, 9:44pm Our house is filled with giant games (giant dice,giant tube, etc.) for family game night. This is something we should try for the next kids' birthday party!

Great! submitted by LibraryLo on July 16, 2016, 11:42am We used this for two special events and it was a hit for the kids who wanted a break from running around. The only downside is that if you have a small car expect to make several trips!

Wizard Chess submitted by jmb.mlis on July 28, 2016, 11:29pm Let the kids (and grownups) pretend to be Harry Potter!

cool submitted by Tamara624 on August 20, 2016, 2:51pm I like this set

A blast! submitted by mickplu on July 8, 2017, 8:32am Great for parties or backyard/indoor fun!

Fun times submitted by slugwhisperer on July 14, 2017, 9:44pm Perfect size for a toddler. Definitely not a choking hazard.

Awesome! submitted by Rocko on July 28, 2017, 2:39pm This is awesome and really fun!!

Chess submitted by avrogers1 on August 18, 2017, 5:37pm I had so much fun at the Summer Game Event playing these giant chess games at the park.

Challenging submitted by keldan315 on August 18, 2017, 10:02pm It's very fun and challenging to play chess in this way. It's not as easy to see all the pieces as it is with normal chess, so it requires a new perspective and lateral thinking.

cool submitted by poptart887 on August 19, 2017, 11:32am this looks so cool, wish i understood the game of chess

more fun than little ol' chess submitted by FordAlpha on August 24, 2017, 9:31pm My 10-year-old has taken a couple of chess classes, and he beat me easily. Still, I had fun whacking his pieces for dramatic take-downs. Gameplay would be better if the pieces were a little heavier, more weighted in the bottom so they don't tip over as easily and so toddlers can't haul them off as easily. But then it would go from "difficult to transport" to "nearly impossible to transport." If only the library had a home delivery service!

great way to play chess submitted by teotar on June 20, 2018, 11:01am This is a great way to get kids to enjoy playing chess! I wish I was able to get one of these for my chess camp.

Best thing ever submitted by erksnerks on June 21, 2018, 6:57pm Checked her out. Kids came home to a chess board the size of our living room. All chess pieces gone, they had to find them... it was epic!

Hours of Big Fun submitted by thegretch on July 18, 2018, 10:30pm Borrowed for a block party and kids of all ages enjoyed playing.

How fun! submitted by halliejewell on August 23, 2018, 8:57pm One of our favorite aspects of coming to the downtown library!

Chess submitted by JY 2005 on August 31, 2018, 11:21pm One of my favorite games, but mega sized!

Chess submitted by c_zhang on June 19, 2019, 1:09am Chess, but big! What's not to like!

Mega Chess (Checkout Four Bags) submitted by Varshini on July 3, 2019, 7:32pm My brother's favorite game is chess. He had TONS of fun playing this with his sister.

Fun but bulky submitted by toschag on July 17, 2019, 2:31pm We checked this out for a birthday party and had a blast, but be warned it comes in 4 rolling duffel bags so bring a friend and a larger car when you come to pick it up.

Giant submitted by Aimless on July 21, 2019, 12:26am Magical to play in the forest!

Love it submitted by TLW1998 on July 21, 2019, 8:59pm I love that our library has it. This is great for a summer party.

So fun submitted by kpepples on August 1, 2019, 7:15pm Perfect for fun of all ages :)

Lat checked these out for a babysitting job. submitted by tbbrown76 on August 12, 2019, 11:05pm Kids loved it, even if they didn't really know all the chess moves. Lots of fun. Recommended.

Great but takes up space in your vehicle submitted by KathyD on August 25, 2019, 10:47am I misread the catalog entry. The chess set comes in four large bags, and we could barely fit it in our minvan with the two other games I had ordered.

Fun party game submitted by lmangus on August 16, 2020, 6:31pm Kids loved playing this life-sized chess with their friend/s. Big pieces. Great intro for kids wanting to learn the game, as they can actually interact with the pieces.

Fun submitted by sara on August 17, 2020, 10:45am My nephews loved playing giant chess!

The bigness of fun is reflected in the note that it's 4 bags submitted by lisa on June 10, 2022, 11:15am I was just stranded in Niagara Falls for a couple of days, and they gave big games, including checkers in this scale, out in wide sidewalks for anyone to play. It made me miss the library.

5/5 submitted by Morgsush on June 16, 2022, 2:24am who doesn't love chess, but mega.

Mega Chess submitted by SBNB on June 27, 2022, 5:27pm So fun to be on the board! I prefer playing chess this way.

Amazing submitted by jibkidder on July 3, 2022, 10:34am So cool that the library can offer this. It is a popular item, so request ahead of time when your child has a party coming up!
