When planning a playing area, consider the minimum size of the square of a chessboard as the diameter of the base of the king (20"). Optimum would be 24" squares, which is also a standard for tile sizes (sometimes made up of four 12" tiles), yielding a chessboard 16' on each side.
To transport the entire MF72 chess set, plan on one full-size truck or equivalent. The best approach is to lay the major pieces on their sides with padding.
