Our Fiberglass Chess Set with a 36" King is a very popular Chess Set. Children and adolescents especially love these pieces, and they are still not too large, nor too heavy, to be taken with you wherever you should wish to play. Even if kept permanently outdoors, in yard or garden, because they are of fiberglass they can withstand any weather.
These Large Fiberglass Chess Pieces are simply stunning. Every piece has been carefully hand crafted to make this beautiful chess set. This 36" set is popular due to its classic design and exceptional beauty.
Although the pieces are heavier that our smaller sets, they can be easily shifted across the squares of the board in actual play.
This elegant teak chess set can be handled by most children and the elderly. When planning to lift the pieces, particularly for children and the elderly, look to the weight of the queen (12 pounds). Although the king is heavier, his one-square move is done with a simple roll along the edge of the base. The queen has a standard collar 18 inches from the floor that is convenient for lifting.
This set is very similar to our smaller chess sets with a Staunton design. MegaChess Fiberglass Chess Sets are superior to any made in the world for the following reasons;
- The Fiberglass used to craft the MegaChess Fiberglass Chess Pieces is among the finest in the world.
- Fiberglass insures that it is durable and weather resistant and suitable for year-round use.
- Sun resistant enamel is applied to the chess pieces to enhance the beauty of the chess set.
- We finish the chess pieces with high-grade protective polyurethane to enhance the beauty of the chess pieces.
- We apply a grooved rubber base that keeps the fiberglass out of puddles that may form on your chessboard in inclement weather.
- Every chess piece is handmade by experienced craftsman.
This is the 3rd largest of our six fiberglass chess sets. These pieces are suitable for play indoors or outdoors. The 36" King is more than eight times the size of a traditional chess set!
When planning a playing area, consider the minimum size of the square of a chessboard as the diameter of the base of the king (15.75"). The optimum chess board would be 18" squares, a standard tile size, yielding a chessboard 12' on each side.
Our Fiberglass Chess Sets are not only beautiful, but they are strong and very durable! Our Fiberglass Chess Sets are featured around the globe in some of the most exquisite resorts, country clubs, corporate settings, and backyards.
