So much fun! submitted by mickplu on July 8, 2017, 10:14am It's wonderful that library has games like this for loan. Perfect for outdoor or indoor play.

Fun submitted by somewhere.gone on June 29, 2018, 10:45pm I like the big pieces, very fun!

Kids love it! submitted by tbbrown76 on June 30, 2018, 10:22am It makes cool clunky sounds when pieces bump. Great for indoors or outdoors. I give it 5/5.

Giant chess submitted by Varshini on July 3, 2019, 7:30pm I wish I knew how to siblings had a lot of fun though.

A unique challenge submitted by toschag on July 17, 2019, 2:27pm When the board is bigger it changes your perception of the game. A fun way to play and have a fresh game of chess.

It’s fun submitted by Aimless on July 21, 2019, 12:32am But bulky

5/5 submitted by Morgsush on June 16, 2022, 2:19am great for parties! who doesn't love chess, but giant.

unlike giant checkers, at least these reach up off the ground a little submitted by lisa on August 5, 2022, 4:37pm but i suck at chess

despite being the checker champion of my elementary scheool

Fun in theory submitted by Bethybeth07 on August 6, 2022, 12:02pm We find it isn’t used usually though as chess tends to take longer than people want to spend at a party

GREAT submitted by rebecca.perreault on August 8, 2022, 12:21pm Fun to borrow for outdoor parties and BBQs in the summer.

Summer game badge submitted by Klyde13 on June 10, 2023, 3:20pm Probably a pretty good book i’m just doing this to get a badge for summer games though

Fun for all, even for kids! submitted by bahr on August 6, 2023, 8:19am My kids loved playing with these huge chess pieces! And chess is for everyone!
