Comparative picture of Giant Chess pieces:

Rolly Giant pieces are on the left; Garden Games pieces are on the right.

Click on the picture to see a larger version. In summary the main differences are:

  • Premium set has more detail than the Garden Games set.
  • Premium set is made from marginally thicker PVC so is slightly more robust.
  • The base of each Premium piece is a single part whereas Garden Games set is made from 2. This makes the Premium bases more robust.
  • The fact that the Garden Games pieces split into two means that they take significantly less storage space. Thus their containing cartons are smaller and they cost less to send.
  • The more contemporary design of the Garden Games pieces is less likely to retain dirt so they may need less cleaning in the long run.

The Uber Giant Chess Set also allows for further extension. Add a set of extenders to turn the set into a Mega Premium Giant Chess Set (King height = 90cm) or add two sets of extenders to create the Ultimate Premium Giant Chess Set with the King piece standing at 120cm.
