Why Giant Garden Chess?
Giant Chess is so much fun to play and also looks great in any garden. Chess is a brilliant traditional game just like Snakes and Ladders and Boules. But it has the skill and charm of the more modern garden games like Giant Jenga and Giant Connect 4. Here at the Big Game Hunters Giant Garden Games shop, we sell a number of chess related products which will have chess enthusiasts outdoors playing - alongside those of you who have never played chess before.
Take the standard garden chess set, which includes a 1.2m square chess mat. You can play this indoors or outdoors and each piece is around 20cm tall.
The larger, more breathtaking set of Giant Chess Pieces will require most children to use both hands when making their move. The pieces are all around 45cm tall and can be left out all year round to be played whenever you like.
You may have a patio you can turn into a chess board, or you may want to purchase a Giant Garden Chess Mat to go with the pieces or Lawn Friendly Chess Boardeven a . Either way, you and your family will have hours of fun playing the game.
The very first World Chess Tournament was played in 1886, and the World Chess Federation was established in the 20th century. Computers were introduced to the game in the 21st century for analysis and to actually play the game itself. Now online gaming is huge and games are broadcast across the web for amateurs to watch professional players go head to head.
The professional side of the game is extremely mathematical - it is not simply a case of knowing the rules, it is a game of strategy and nerve. At one major online chess site they have over 4 million members - that is how popular the game still is today.
