I built a full scale chess game many years ago. I went to a steel fab company and had them use a plasma torch cut the frame out os a 1/2 thick steel slab. the boards I made out of plexyglass and i used clear blue paint to made the checkered board. For the chess peaces I bought a complete set of both the next gen crew and the orginal crew made from puter and had the next gen crew coated in gold. it is a very awesome game and a blast to play. if anyone wants to see it, send me a request at [email protected] and i will send you a picture of it. laters, dethstalker
