the North Fork Human Chess Match
November 1st 2014 at the Mill Site?
This is the tentative date we are exploring for our second match
We perform a living chess game. It is played by people dressed up as chess pieces on a 576 square foot chess board (24' by 24'). Our first match was May 24th of 2014. There are a few pictures here.

White Bishop vs. Black Knight, May 2014 match.
Yes, this is an absurdly simple website that is NOT cell phone friendly, I will be replacing it with a new site in the near future. I have over 600 images from the first game, so, more will be posted.
