Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
In 2005, MegaChess began donating chess sets to American units deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq. We teamed with Operation Interdependence to get the chess sets overseas taking a different route. The chess sets first go to a major US city and are displayed next to a trade show, music concert, or festival. While on display, the public is invited to write messages on the chess sets with markers -- much like signing an arm cast. The MegaChess signings were more popular than we expected. And the messages we read were so touching that we decided to design a poster to accompany the chess sets. For the modern soldiers, we used a few Marines from our nearby Camp Pendleton, a place that has sent many brave Marines in harm's way to defend our country.

Soldier Chess Poster January 26, 2016
Reviewer: Dennis Wigg from Deep River, CT United States  
I like the support the customer service when I received some bent posters.  Very fast response by your people to take care of the program.  Since I have used the posters at the VA in West Haven CT and mostly I like your story behind the poster and I let the veterans know about the history of the poster. Maybe one day I'll be able to get a mega chess set to use at the VA with the veterans
