    i live near where the giant chess set is. i dont remember what the name is, but theres a place that i went to in elementary school for a field trip. i remember seeing that giant chess board there. i have no idea why they had it there, cause it was in the middle of a garden…

    well then again, it could just be a giant chess set that someone bought in the picture.

  3. Darrell

    Ah. The Wobble Chess Set. So simple. Sooo cooool!

  4. Ninja Egg :D

    Ive seen the wobble chess set before. They r all cool. I love the cake one. The cardboard looks cool but it seems like it would break easily or something.

  5. kadal

    wobble chess set was the best…..most wanted.!!!!

  7. Saadieq

    Straight up chess set is quite cool!

  8. gunneos

    vertical chess set is nice. LED one looks cool until you realise you can’t see the actual board you’re playing on

  9. Househangover

    Wobble and the transparent are the best!

  10. Theobama

    The cardboard one would be cool if it wasn’t cardboard. The Straight-Up one would be fantastic if the wasn’t a back on it and it could be played between the cells in a county jail.

    Wobble and transparent are the best for sure.

    Love the wobble chess set but the ice one is pointless.

  12. Glenn Contreras

    3D chess is brilliant!

  13. Juliee

    Pffft. And people say chess is boring.

  14. Anya

    The giant chess sets are fairly common, I’ve seen them in several cities. The vertical board is very cool though, a nice marriage of function and decor:-)

    i think the transparent board will make the game of chess a bit more difficult and confusing, also my uncle has a giant chess board but its less smaller and its made out of marble

  16. Karl

    I should hope it’s smaller if it’s marble. Playing a game with marble pieces this size would require a crane, at the least you’d have to get your opponent to help you move, which might be a lot to ask. Imagine the physical effort of exchanging queens!

  17. Ernest

    This is going to sound crazy. Played chess once on a deeply laminated board that had deep imaging starting with the distorted faces that made up the surface squares. The pieces had beveled or arched bottoms and would wobble almost in a move me manner. I believe the set originated from China. Trippy. Anyone heard of or have played on such a set?
