Massive chess set is playing for keeps.

This is…huge. Large. And I think it might just come after me in my sleep.

Making its debut at Brickworld in Chicago, this massive chess set features a year-long build time, over 100k pieces, and 32 NXT. Your design team features:

· Project Lead: Steve Hassenplug
· Chess Body Design: John Brost
· Software & PC Interface: Ron McRae
· Move Selection Center & Showcase Event Coordination: Bryan Bonahoom
· Chess Clock: Jenn Wagner

With nearly 2 dozen people helping with the actual build, this chess set is clearly a herculean effort. It looks simply amazing.

    Wow.

    Haha, I LOVE those knights! I wish there had been animated features in some (Or all) of the other pieces, too, but it’s plenty incredible the way it is.

    Oh, I spoke too soon! The King bangs (Or waves, I suppose) his scepter upon winning! Haha!

    Then I saw the project leader’s name and was like “…Ooohhh…”
