The Origin of Giant Chess


Chess has come a long way since the invention of the 4 player game played with dice called Shaturanga. The elephants and boatmen are gone as are the dice that originally gave the game a random (and probably a gambling) element. Since it's introduction to Western Europe in the early 2nd millenia, people have been tinkering with the style and shape of the pieces and that continues to this day.

Although individuals had made large chess sets from stone, wood and marble in the past, it was the German manufacturer Rolly in the twentieth Century who first started to mass-produce the game in a giant form using sun-proof hollow plastic pieces. Other manufacturers such as Uber Games, Garden Games and Jaques have all attempted to produce their own versions of Giant Chess and the concept remains popular due to the visually impressive impact that any Giant Chess set induces.

You can learn more about the History of Chess from the Online Guide to Traditional Games.
