A very large chess set, so big that you can walk across it, occupies one end of the very long porch at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Kids staying at the hotel quickly learn how much fun it is to play a game of chess on this giant sized game board.
Our grandsons gravitated toward the big set and even got to play a game or two after dinner one night. The hour really wasn't midnight, but in this photo, it surely looks like it could be midnight chess.
