"Full Contact Chess!" Christchurch Sports & Outdoors Tip by ATXtraveler
Christchurch Sports & Outdoors: 42 reviews and 44 photos
In downtown Christchurch, directly in front of the church is actually a full sized chess board, designed with grey and darker grey tiles on the ground, and someone brings out full sized chess pieces every day. Although we watched the match for quite a while, they never got close enough to each other to actually tackle one another, so I can not be certain it actually was "full contact", but the gentleman playing the white team clearly had a protective helmet on for some reason.
Equipment: The chess pieces are provided, but you may want to bring your helmet just in case!
Address: Cathedral Square, Christchurch, NZ
