Outdoor fun? Check!

It's the perfect, summer day at the beach. The two of you have already splashed around in the surf, and now, as the others build sand castles or swim, you're both stretched out in the shade, enjoying the warm breeze.

Laid out between you is this casual, beach-ready game set. The painted, wooden pieces have nautical-themed chess images on one side, or you can flip them over to play checkers. The board is printed onto a sturdy burlap sack, which doubles as a care-free carrying container. You may reach checkmate in another couple moves. Or not. Either way, this day is a definite win. Made in USA.

        Well made and interesting product. However smaller than expected for a beach item. Burlap carrying bag is a great idea.

          It's original and something unique to bring to the beach but for the price I was expecting/hoping for something bigger/better overall.

              This is such a wonderful gift for my husband. One of the first things we ever did on a date was play chess! We are leaving for Florida next week and this is most definitely coming with us! Can't wait to relax with my family and play some awesome beach chess. What a great gift!
