Giant Chess

I wonder now whether I should have done this differently, though there is no taking it back now, but I have just painted this checkerboard on the floor of our balcony so that we can play the occasional game of chess out in the fresh air with the giant chess pieces. (The King is 40cm tall, but I believe you can get a set with a 90cm King)

Now that I think about it, I possibly could have painted the board onto a sheet of marine ply, screwed down, so as to remove it when the day comes to, you know, not have a checkerboard on the balcony. Sigh.The game stretches the mind and the pieces stretch the muscles, as you have to get up each time you make a move!
