Giant Chess - Barber Sport Surfaces

By: Barber Sport Surfaces  09-12-2011

Check Mate, Check and I Won can be screamed, if for no other reason than to match the size of the chess pieces. This is chess at a different view point, one bigger than you are accustomed to.

This is an excellent way to get more than two people involved in a single game of chess whether you own a resort and are trying to entertain, a municipality trying a new community effort or a mom just trying to get a break. It's also not as easy as you would think to play at this large a scale having to step through and around your pieces and actually becoming part of the game.

We have two options for you to choose from.

Our polypropylene plastic pieces are rotationally moulded for proper thickness and strength. White and black pieces are available, the kings being 24" tall with bases that can be filled for weighting down. An accompanying plastic snap together chess board is also available to complete the total package.

The other available set is made of beautiful Teak wood with matching Teak tiles for the board. These pieces are light and dark woods, the kings being again 24" tall coated with exterior wood preservatives. Being that these pieces are mostly hand carved it is possible to customize your pieces to your own design.

And remember, "We Are Sports, from the Ground Up", which means we provide everything you need from the Knight you can't ride to the Pawn you can crown.
