Giant Chess Set - The Goliath Of Chess Sets

Author : Richie Chan

Chess is a thrilling and mind-rousing game that calls for adequate and mindful strategizing and it is also a calming game that doesn't call for a lot of physical action. What if you were to play with oversized and weighted chess pieces, about triple or quadruple the size of a standard chess piece, outdoors, just picture how much entertaining it would be. Referred to as the giant chess set, it is essentially the same as any kind of chess set, with the only variation in the oversized pieces and board. These are generally played or exhibited outdoors, in the lawn or the patio, and it is normally utilized as a giant outdoor chess set.

The pieces for giant chess sets would typically measure 43 to 64cm high and about 24cm in diameter. These may be handmade or created from a mold and most are produced for outdoor application, which indicates that they can go through the weather outside. Most chess pieces are made from resin, plastic, or wood and any other weather proof materials. For more sophisticated sets, materials like glass, bronze, or even onyx may be used. Typically, to be able to enable the pieces to stand appropriately, despite a strong wind, they are weighted down and each piece has a hollow base, which can be crammed with sand or water.

Extraordinary themes may also be encountered in giant chess sets, much like regular chess sets. Featuring castle-inspired pieces, the giant castle chess set theme is one of the most well-liked themes. The overall game experience can also become more distinctive and thrilling with pop culture themes, like Disney themes, superhero themes, the Simpson themes, Star Wars themes, and so on, which happen to be very well-known among children.

Giant chess pieces and the board may be purchased separately or as a set. Just like the Kettler Giant Chess Set, which comes with a puzzle-like resin board, the easy assembly feature is present in many giant chess sets. For simple and hassle-free application and storage, some brands may include a fold out sheet that acts as a chess board. There are also some styles where the board is a massive piece made out of sturdy wood, which is perfect for fixed set up in the backyard.

Besides the giant chess set, one can also come across giant Chinese checker sets in the same retailers. Bear in mind though, searching for a replacement for missing chess pieces may be tough, as well as expensive, so make certain not to drop any piece. As an aside, a fantastic birthday present for a chess loving individual is a giant chocolate chess-themed cake.

Chess is essentially a typical game, one that has been available for centuries. To basically employ any chess set as design at home will not be sufficient to give that exceptional feel. Thankfully, giant chess sets can supply the distinctive outdoor adornment for your home.
