How to play giant chess?

The game of chess

Chess is a game with two players, involving strategic moves played on a checkered board.

  • There are 64 squares on the board that are arranged in an 8 x 8 square grid
  • Each player is given 16 chess pieces, that are able to be moved specifically on the game board
  • The game’s origins date back to the Indian game chaturanga sometime in the 6th century. Chaturanga was played with four players, but over time, the game evolved to just two players.
  • In the past, chess pieces were constructed from wood, marble, and stone
  • Giant chess boards came into existence in the 20th century when a German manufacturer named Rolly decided to mass produce the larger than life plastic game pieces.
  • Goal of the game is to deliver a checkmate, basically trapping your opponent’s king.

The game pieces were made of a hollow, sun-proof plastic and included:


  • 1 king: Can move exactly one square horizontally, vertically, or diagonally
  • 1 queen: Can move to any number of empty squares in a horizontal, diagonal, or vertical manner
  • 2 rooks: Can move to any number of empty squares in a horizontal or vertical fashion
  • 2 knights: Can move one square along any rank or file, and then at an angle, essentially moving in the shape of an L or 7
  • 2 bishops: Can only move in a diagonal direction along any number of empty squares
  • 8 pawns: Can move forward one square if it is empty. If a pawn has not started any moves, it can move two squares forward if those squares are empty.

The game of checkers 

Checkers is a strategic board game with two players who move game pieces on a checkered board. 

  • The game board has 64 squares that are arranged in an 8x 8 formation      
  • The 12 game pieces are flat and round, and are referred to as “men.”        
  • Game pieces are colored dark and light, are moved in a specific manner to capture the opponents game pieces.        
  • The game dates back to ancient times, and is believed to have derived from alquerque (a strategy game that is believed to have originated in the Middle East) 
  • Opponent with the darker pieces moves first 
  • Pieces may only move one diagonal square forward in the beginning of the game 
  • Pieces must stay on the dark squares 
  • Goal is to capture your opponent’s piece by jumping over it in two diagonal spaces in the direction of where it is

Benefits of learning to play chess and checkers:

  • Brings people together from different cultures and ages who are passionate about the game 
  • Teaches an individual how to win and lose through endless strategic skills and maneuvers 
  • Helps children’s awareness of their actions and the consequences. Some moves made on the chess/checker board yield positive results, while the wrong move can result in poor results. 
  • Helps children focus on their tasks at home and at school 
  • Helps to develop creativity with the tactics, logic, skills, and style in which an individual plays the game 
  • Builds confidence in problem-solving skills, and decision-making skills because it requires an individual to utilize both sides of their brain 
  • Teaches an individual to stay calm under pressure which can enhance both productivity and performance
