The MegaChess Large Chess Pieces are extra-large pieces made of rugged, waterproof, anti-UV injection-molded plastic. They resist staining and fading, even when exposed to the elements. These pieces are big enough to be more fun than average-size chess sets, but lightweight enough to take with you to outings.
The weight of each piece ranges from 4 to 6 ounces, making them easily movable by young children. If you prefer heavier pieces, you can simply drill a hole at the bottom of each piece, fill it with sand, and seal it back up with adhesive.
These large chess pieces have the potential to inspire children to learn strategy and logic. They are great for beginners and perfect for lawn games, wedding events, backyard fun, chess clubs, schools, and more!

One of the Most Popular Sets
The Premium 12-Inch Plastic Giant Chess Set is one of the most popular sets from MegaChess. While still 6 times larger than most tabletop chess sets, this set is a little smaller than our giant chess sets. It includes 16 black and 16 white pieces. The Large Chess Pieces range in height from a 12-inch king to an 8-inch-tall pawn. The set can be used both indoors and outdoors and is made with high-quality, long-lasting materials. Chess mat or board sold separately.
These large plastic chess sets are displayed all over the world, in various climates and environments. They can stay outdoors for extended periods without maintenance, staining, or fading, making them a great addition to any lawn, backyard, or garden. Made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) injection-molded, hollow, recycled plastic, they are waterproof, resistant to UV rays, and will retain their huge shape and color regardless of weather.
Great for Customers with Limited Space
MegaChess makes giant chess sets that are 8, 12, 16, 25, 37, and 49 inches tall. This set is our second smallest giant plastic chess set. It is designed for smaller children or customers with less than five feet of space for their chess board. Standing between 12 and 8 inches tall, these large lawn chess pieces are surprisingly light enough for even the youngest players to move easily, yet large enough to resist the wind.
Commercial or Residential
The set is very portable. This large-size yard chess set can be displayed anywhere – big open floors, backyards, parties, campgrounds, shopping malls, schools, university and corporate campuses, cruise ships, local parks, museums – for groups of people to enjoy the complex and entertaining strategy implementation in a game of chess. Chess can become a communal experience and bring together family and friends when played out in the open on a lifesize set.
Each MegaChess item is meticulously handcrafted by artisans to ensure it maintains its appearance and integrity in all weather conditions and with long-term frequent use. We have been in the business of manufacturing large chess and checkers sets, boards, mats, and other accessories using the highest quality standards since 2002.
