Giant Chess



I envision the Irish tower we built in California as a giant stone playing piece, the first one of many different towers in a gigantic world game of three-way chess.


The stone tower is the castle or the ‘rook’ and it’s on the white side. (This could be the side of the international team of French, Irish, US and Canadian.) 

Who the grey and black sides are, will have to be decided on as other chess towers are designed and constructed and ‘transported' to the board



This video clip is a quick rough visualization of how I imagine the board will be ‘landscaped' and how the view might look from a drone’s perspective, (minus all the pieces except ours).


I’m not sure what all the rules are yet. Three sides and three dimensions might get a bit complicated. 

Anyway the tower was the hard part, right?




Of course there is only this one rook on the board so far.

Three full sets of monumental chess structures still need to be constructed.
