So, are you considering investing in a giant chess set? You came to the right site. You can browse more than 50 of our Giant Chess Sets on this page or continue reading our article.
In this article, we’ll cover, why customers buy giant chess sets, the difference between commercial and residential sets, how large do the chess sets get and much more.
The typical chess set is about 3 inches tall. Ours are Mega Big! Our smallest chess set is 7 inches tall and out largest stretches all the way to a set with a 6 foot tall King! Despite their size, the giant chess pieces have all the details of a smaller set. You can choose a chess set, complete with all 32 pieces (16 for each player), that is made from the material of your choice. The pieces come in plastic, teak wood, birch wood, acrylic, and fiberglass. We even make giant topiary chess sets you can use to shape your bushes into giant chess pieces!
Whether you are a chess enthusiast or a beginner who is just learning the game, these giant chess sets are perfect for learning or playing with friends, family and associates. You can play indoors or outdoors, and a chess set would be a great addition to any party, picnic, or other special events.
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 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. If you have children, for example, a set with 25 inch or three-foot chess pieces would be better than a set with six-foot pieces. If you plan to play outdoors, you will want a durable chess set.
A giant chess set can come in different sizes, can be made from different materials, and can feature different designs. You might choose chess pieces made from wood, fiberglass, plastic, or other materials. You can even choose a novelty chess set with pieces that resemble teddy bears, tiki statues, or beer bottles. Because of the numerous options, you can find the exact type of chess set that you want and even customize it so that it matches your needs.
Giant chess sets are between 12 and 72 inches tall. The chess pieces are measured by the inch, so there are many options within this broad size range. For example, you can get a set that has pieces that average 25 inches, 36 inches, or 48 inches. There is no need to choose from a limited number of sizes. You will, however, need to make sure that the size of the squares on your board, which is sold separately, match the size of your chess pieces.
Our chess sets will work outdoors or indoors. If you plan to use them outdoors in all types of conditions, you can choose an option with plastic, fiberglass, or wire-frame chess pieces. Even our hand-carved wood pieces are suitable for outdoor play. If you plan to transport the chess pieces to an outdoor event, you should be aware of the total measurement of the chess set. A foldable or rollable board can make transportation to outdoor venues easier.
Our chess sets are made from a variety of materials, including hand-carved teak and birch wood. Other chess set options are made from plastic or fiberglass. We also offer acrylic and wire-frame sets, and novelty options such as a chess set made from stuffed animals, and one constructed out of beer bottles. You will want to match the material with your weather-resistance and weight needs and with the type of look that you want.
A giant chess set and chess board are sold separately. This allows you to customize your set even further because you can choose the board design and style that best fits your needs and your budget. You can choose from nylon, plastic, or wood boards. We have roll-up and foldable options that are ideal for those who want to transport their sets frequently. When choosing a board, you need to be certain that the size of the squares matches the size of your chess pieces.
