A fun way for beginners to learn this traditional game of skill and cunning and a totally new dimension for established chess lovers. These all weather pieces are made from durable plastic. The detail will catch any ones eye and would have to play. Dimensions: King 63.5cm (25in) high; Pawn 40cm (16in) high. Mat not included.
These are commercial grade and are recommended for both commercial and residential use for the increased durability.
Both (Black & White), White Pieces, Black Pieces

The giant chess set looks very impressive. I found that a lot of people couldnot play chess, however, admired their looks. More campers played with checkers, the kids making up their own game usually. My only suggestion would be to include more king (sticks) to facilate stacking and storing at end of day.
Emily Coates –
Great game, sturdier mat might be better.
Editor’s note: Game is used at one of Canada’s busiest libraries.
Emily Coates –
We love the sets. It is great to see the guest spending time playing. In fact we had a 10 year old here from Africa who played chess everyday and beat most of the adults that dared to play with him.
Editors note: This review is also in Giant Checkers

Assembly is easy, but the product can crack to easily as it is made out of thin plastic – should be sturdier, heavier plastic.
Garvin Clayton, Park Manager –
This product has received extensive use since we installed it in July and was an instant hit with the users of our Park. The only problem we encountered was with the 2 piece base coming apart. We had placed a small amount of sand in each piece to prevent them from blowing over in wind conditions. If children were rough with the pieces (dropping or striking them together) the base would come apart. We since removed the sand, cleaned the grove and have had no problems since. If we decide to add sand again, we will seal the base together using a fine bead of urethyne.

Fun to watch families playing this together

This is the fourth time we’ve ordered from Lynx and every time we’re suitably impressed to make sure that we will continue ordering. The Chess Set is wonderful – better quality than the previous one and it looks great.
I can happily recommend the chess set and Lynx too.

My overall experience with Lynx Leisure Inc was positive and encouraging. I ordered my chess set just a few days prior to Father’s Day. I was surprised to get a phone call from the company explaining that the set would not make it in time for Father’s day due to a rush of orders leading up to June 15th. My purchase was not intended to be a gift but I thought it was very thoughtful and professional for them to take the time to phone me.
My set arrrived not long after in great shape and I am now enjoying this product.
Great work Lynx Leisure!

The municipal office purchased this set for our waterfront area and it is constantly being used. The pieces are very durable and easy for people of all ages to move. We have received nothing but positive feedback from our visitors. Excellent customer service was provided and we received our order very quickly. We highly recommend this product.

Everyone loves playing even those who don’t normally like to play. The younger kids love it and you always have an audience… It’s more of a group activity that a game for two!
Our family made a trip to Cuba and played this chess game for hours on end in the sun. When we returned home, I did some research and found the game through Lynx Leisure. Exactly what we were looking for. The pieces are easy to assemble and look great!! The plastic chess board is the way to go for sure. I believe a mat would blow away or pieces not sit properly. Lynx Leisure is great to deal with and quick to respond to any questions. No trouble with shipping either. order, wait a couple days, set up and play!
Jackie Westgate –
We are thrilled to get our giant chess pieces! Lynx Leisure went out of their way to make sure we got our product in a timely manner. We are enjoying playing in the Okanagan sunshine!!
Dina Signor –
From first contact with Lynx Leisure there was good rapport. All went according to plan – FIRST TIME AROUND. No need to follow up or look for shipment, and this from one end of the continent to the other – Alberta, Canada to Florida, USA.
Will recommend – already have recommended to several different parties.

I am very happy with the service from Chris and Lynx Leisure. I bought the Giant Chess set along with my six grown children for their father for fathers day . We built a chess board in our yard and not only do they look fabulous they are light weight enough to move around however sturdy enough they don’t get blown around. Thanks Chris!
Kate Brookbanks –
Beside the long wait to get the product – I am satisfied
Editors Note: Unfortunately we ran out of stock on the giant chess sets just before your order due to unforeseen demand, we typically have these in stock. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We are very happy with Lynx service, the fast delivery and the quality of our new Giant Chess Set that we anticipate will last for years.
Editor’s note: Thanks for the great picture Cecil, it looks fantastic with the paving stone chess board.
Bob Rasko –
Very happy, easy to assemble. Look great.
Chelsea MacDonald –
This chess set is exactly what I wanted. The pieces are easy to put together and I put some sand in the bottom to add some weight as was suggested. They are perfect!
The best part of the purchase was the delivery. It came a week and a half earlier than expected and it was delivered in 2 boxes right to my door. Lynx also updated the status of my delivery every few days which was greatly appreciated!!
Tamara Traub –
While we’ve only had this chess set for a month it seems quite durable.
Denise Neilson –
Not only is this product exactly what I was looking for, the customer service was excellent. I was given terrific advice about replacing individual pieces instead of a new set. I ended up getting an entirely new one, and I couldn’t be happier!
Ashton Burdge –
I am very happy with this product! It’s perfect for a fun, backyard game. And the service from Lynx was exceptional – they went above and beyond to ensure we received our product quickly for an upcoming event.
Kristen Bartels –
This chess set is just what we were looking for. It’s a fun addition to our pool area. I would recommend this product for its quality for sure!

Thank you for making it easy!
Kevin Kurbis –
This is a great addition in our backyard, gets the kids using their brains. Lynx was quick to contact me when what I had ordered did not make sense to them. A quick conversation corrected that and my set arrived a couple days later. Quality product that was easy to assemble.
Bill Reid –
Opening a new P-12 school and the chess pieces are a focal point in our cafetorium!
They are high quality and engaging as students and staff move them around on our chess board floor.
Editor’s note: I’m glad to hear both your students and staff are enjoying playing with the huge chess set.
Excellence Service, honest and efficient.
Editor’s note: Thank you Cathy for the review, that’s the only way we know how to run a business! We always try our best.
We created a giant chess board in our School Library – it has been a hit with the students (and staff). The pieces are light but seem durable. We are hoping to build an outdoor board next spring and give them a try outside. If you have chess players, they will love this!
Elizabeth Louter –
Chris at Lynx Leisure was extremely helpful!
This outdoor chess set is great.
Thank you for the kind words! Enjoy your giant outdoor chess set! Chris
