We will be playing the fifth Human Scale Chess Game in Seattle on Sunday, August 1.

Here is how the game works: an eight-block-by-eight-block section of the Seattle city grid will be chosen as our chess board. Each intersection will represent a square on the chess board. Humans playing the roles of the chess pieces will be standing on the appropriate corners. Somewhere in the center of the board, expert players will be playing a real game of chess. When an expert moves, for example, a white bishop, i will call the person representing the white bishop and ask her to walk the number of blocks required by the move.

More information about the game

We need 32 volunteers with working cellphones to play the roles of the chess pieces. Sign up now and select the role you will play. Costuming is strongly enoucouraged. We are also seeking expert players to play the master game. Peruse past games to learn what to expect on game day.
