Benefits of Playing Giant Chess

A large chess set can bring a classic game outdoors and give it a physical dimension that most regular-sized board games lack. Also, since the pieces are human-size, you can have more than two people participate. Everyone can take part in a single game, moving the pieces around the board and working together on strategy.

This type of chess set turns the game into a social event. If you choose the right size (perhaps three feet or so), you can get your children or younger family members to participate in a group game. Young players may be attracted because of the unusual size of the pieces and have a reason to learn chess (instead of spending time on video games). The pieces and board are portable, so you can take the game with you when you go on a picnic or camping or to the beach. The unusual size of the chess pieces will always draw attention and create a fun, social environment around you.

More than half our customers are businesses. You’ll find our giant chess set everywhere! Schools, resorts, campgrounds, residential communities, shopping malls, elderly care facilities, rental companies, cruise ships, municipal parks, libraries, corporations and homeowners love our chess sets.

The Difference Between Residential and Commercial Giant Chess Sets

The difference between giant chess sets used by our residential and commercial customers boils down to two major factors; the sets durability and the way the customers use the chess set.

Most of our residential customers place the chess set in one location and leave it out permanently. The set could be placed on a permanent board or a board purchased from us. Commercial customers tend to move their giant chess sets frequently. Resorts may place the chess set by the pool during the day, but move it to a high-end lounge in the evening. Shopping malls may place the set in a public area during operating hours, but need to break the set and board down after closing.

Durability is a must for commercial sets. The users handle giant chess sets in public locations hard. Kids can be very hard giant chess pieces. They drop and even through the giant pieces. Our giant plastic chess sets can be dropped from the second story of a building with no damage, so they stand up very well in commercial use.

Many of our residential customers are also looking for durability, but for some, the beauty of the giant chess set is equally important. Until recently, you had to choose between a beautiful chess set and a durable set. Watch for a major announcement early in 2019 on our new beautiful giant plastic chess sets.

Giant chess sets come in different sizes, and they are made from different materials. Before you buy, you should consider how you plan to use your chess set. The size and material should match your plans and should fit the people who will play the game.
