Playing Chess outside the Jackson Coffee Company

Playing Chess outside the Jackson Coffee Company

When you hear the birds and see the buds on the trees, you naturally should think about outdoor chess. My rating goes up 35 points when I breathe in that sweet flower scented air and hear the sounds of birds and people laughing as the stroll along the sidewalk. The strong aromatic smell of coffee is an added bonus to clear my senses. Anyways, I ran into these 2 fine gentelmen engaged in a most Royal Battle. They picked a fantastic spot and decided to let their cares and worries dissolved into the games. This is Jimio saying get outdoors and get some exercise and above all *Play Outdoor Chess*

Giant Chess Set at the Westwood Mall

Giant Chess Set at the Westwood Mall

This huge chess set recently arrived at the Westwood Mall in Jackson, Michigan. They are sturdy thick plastic pieces with some weight added inside so that they will not tip over easily. The Westwood Mall was opened in 1972, so it has been 43 years that Jackson chess connoisseurs have waited to be able to play and analyze their games on such a large scale. A set this size you give you a new dimension in dep th and a greater outlook at observing variations. There are even giant checker pieces that are stacked on a rolling rack for all the checker enthusiasts. The only problem I see with this set is the pawns are almost as tall as the bishops and you can mistake a pawn for a bishop if you are not careful. This is Jimio saying: *Chess for Fun* *Come down to Westwood Mall and give the Giant Set a try*
