Note: 14.5 feet, 2280 lbs. (How big is the board/whole set?) How much work to move 1 square?
Sequel


How big would the board be? At which square would the grains of rice no longer fit on the GIANT board?








What's the scale compared to standard? How tall would a person be if they were enlarged by that scale?

























How much smaller would this have to be to fit on the chess board to the right?












Why is the chessboard to the right at a smaller scale? (Or is it the same scaled skewed by perspective?)
