Lifesize Chess Sets Help You Get Your Game On

Doesn't this seem a little "Alice and Wonderland" to you? Now you can get your game on outside with this ginormous plastic chess set. Gadget Hub says that this game is "A fun way for beginners to learn this traditional game of skill and cunning and a totally new dimension to the game for established chess lovers"...no easy cheating with this one. The all weather pieces come in two sections so you can fill them with water or sand to weigh them down. Great, for $1038 I can get this garden chess game to go alongside my Michaelangelo statuette! In the meantime, I think I'll stick to playing the Wii outside.

When I become a *rich* geek, perhaps then I will own one of these...until then I'll have to live with the tabletop version!

Now, that is pretty classy. But if I were the type to throw $1000 dollars at a giant chess set, I think I'd rather do it Mr. Burns style and get myself a human chess board. Now that, would be awesome.

ddene, they also have one indoors at City Beach in Fremont, CA. There's a bar in there too. Hmmm... tequila shots + life size chess = scary!

Cute, but overpriced. The board looks kind of cheaply made, like an outdoor table cloth.

I love it! I don't play chess, but it'd be a great addition to a huge garden or something. It seems like something Diddy would have laying in his backyard. :D

It's too expensive, but it's totally cool. It'd be easy to make a giant checkers board.....

This is too expensive for me, but I think it's a cool idea for chess fanatics.
