This outdoor version of draughts (Checkers) is a popular crowd draw and will bring a new dimension to any party or garden. Garden draughts is eye-catching but is also designed to be played. The draughtsmen are made from a very strong and durable PVC material that is UV protected and completely waterproof. The pieces will withstand, for instance, average-sized people standing on them.
To make a King, two draughts are connected through their middles by a rod. The top of the rod then protrudes above the King and acts as a handle for moving it around.
The height of each piece is 90mm (3.5 inches) with a base diameter of 255mm (about 10 inches). It comes with 6 metal rods with plastic bases. The weight of the complete set of 24 pieces is 10kg. The giant draughts come in a simple cardboard carton of dimension 750 x 450 x 450mm (approx. 2.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 feet). This can be used to store the checkers pieces - if you need to transport them regularly we would suggest applying Duct tape around the corners and edges of the box to provide additional support. Supplied without board.
