Outdoors Checkers or Chess Board

A larger patio with pavers in two colors makes an oversized checker/chess board. Use Frisbees in two colors for checkers. You can order these online imprinted with your own family logo! Order a giant chess set from a store like and you're ready to turn this quiet parlor game for two into a lively outdoor team sport
