Our giant garden chess set is the same used in schools and press around the world. The pieces are beautiful – often used by schools in photo-shoots as props – and the kids simply love them. It is a joy seeing students forming teams to compete against each other and then devising strategies to win. The kings are 24″ high and each piece comes in 2 parts – a base which can be unscrewed and filled with sand or water if necessary. We can supply a tile board to play on – as shown in the picture or a mat if necessary, but often schools will use tiles in playground. Just remember that when you play, the board should be orientated so that there is a WHITE square in the RIGHT Hand corner.
