it's good to be king

Yesterday JQ, G-man, & I went to brunch at Granite City with my mom, stepdad, brother, and grandma. The restaurant is at this outdoor "open-air" shopping complex. Right outside the restaurant is a giant chessboard. Now that it's Spring the chess pieces are on the board waiting to be played. It was really chilly out yesterday, but after brunch the wind had died down just enough that we could check out the chess board without freezing our butts off. Of course, I had my camera with me. G-man thought the board was very cool. Here's a shot of him as the king.

Dude, I want to play chess on a life-size board. Also, I want it to be a giant chess match to the death. That would be cool. (or not)

The king of the for a short time, maybe - the king of your hearts forever!

Great shot!

That's great, I remember playing on a giant chess board with my husband on our Honeymoon.

That's awesome! And I agree, I would love to play chess on a life sized board like that!

vp—I wonder what G-man thought of them? I should show him the normal sized pieces & compare them to the picture—I bet he would get a kick out of that.

golightly—Very cool. Were they heavy?

maggie—I would be nervous if a crowd developed to watch me play.
