The family that plays (chess) together stays together

Huge backyard chess set
You’d be forgiven for not thinking of chess as the first game that your whole family will want to play together, but with this over-sized backyard chess set, that might change.

Now, you can own your very own gigantic backyard chess set, similar to those which you’ve seen in city parks or other public gathering spots.

The chess set consists of a 9 foot square “board” and the requisite set of game pieces which are about 16-25″ tall. The pieces are molded of lightweight plastic and carry the Rolly Toys name. Supposedly the pieces are heavy enough to be relatively wind-proof, but you can add more weight if needed.

If you’d like to own your very own over-sized backyard chess game, it’ll cost you around $600.
