Karl's giant chess set unleashed!

A fun evening at the club this week when Karl brought along his giant chess set for us all to see. And when he said it was a big set, he meant it! The kings are about 12in high and the giant board has six-inch squares on a bespoke table made by a local cabinet maker.

It's a beautifully-made exhibition set and would be ideal for use at a special event. (Might try to persuade him to bring it the the Shropshire congress in January.)

Here are some photos of the set in action. (The white king in the middle photo is from a standard-height chess set to show you the scale.)
