Greek Vase Solid Brass Chess Set
This is a solid brass chess set patinad in an attractive red and green combination and features a king size of 14 cms (nearly 5.5") with King base diameter of 1 7/8".
This set is soooo much more intimidating in the hand. Huge. Solid. You should be able to pass this set down four generations. The Solid "cap" of the bishop will fill your entire palm and I wear extra large gloves. Of course the stars of the show are the King and Queen. Very Unique interpretations. The cuffs beneath each piece harkens to a mechanical theme. Your really need 2.5 inch squares to show the set off well.
Childhood Memories Playing Board Games
At Direct Source Games, we are also on the look out for great deals and tid bits of information from around the house and home. For example in the living room, a quick search online for the best recliners online can give you many results.
Relaxing on your favorite recliner to play a great board game can be even better. In fact, this is one of my greatest memories as a child. It was my dad sitting on his recliner chair and we broke out the Monopoly set for an epic battle. We were playing for a solid 6 to 7 hours before I emerged the winner by placing hotels on nearly every property. It was an epic battle as Dad fell asleep on the recliner.
There were other battles we had throughout the house. For example, when he bought a propane smoker for the family. This lead to some of the longest and most intense cook offs and board game nights we have ever had. My Mom and Dad love brisket, which I learnt to master off my elder brother who was a chef down at the local Italian restaurant. The key he told me was early preparation, long before the meat hits the smoker, it has to be prepared and spiced with a secret herbs and spices recipe that he taught me.
My Mom would use the propane smoker to cook up some delicious roasts including slow cooking the vegetables to perfection. The smoker worked by using the smoke generated from the chips at the base to increase the temperature in the stealed oven. These kind of cooks should not be taken lightly and make sure that you put aside a solid amount of time before undertaking the smoking of meat.
The greatest memory of them all world be our mower races in the summer. We would all meet on the lawn and my Dad would roll out our three mowers. Each had seen a generation or two. I was lucky enough to get the newest one, the ZTR ride on mower that all the reviews said was at the top of it's game.
The mower race would consist of us all riding our respective mowers around a pre-designed course in the yard. It would be hard fought and a difficult course to say the least. We were all lucky there were not more injuries or chopped off hands. The advantage of the ZTR mower was on the corners. I was able to zoom around the really tight corners with ease while dad was on the traditional style of ride on mower, so all his corners were very wide. The best time for the race was a 25 second flat completion which I achieved on my 18th birthday. Not sure why I was so fast that day, but it sure felt good going around the track. Dad was just worried about me damaging his favorite mower.
