 I recently watched, flabbergasted,​ as two of my nieces played a game of chess outdoors with giant chess pieces. What astounded me was not the size of the pieces, but rather the fact that they appeared to be playing two different games, and yet purported to be competing. When I inquired about this, my suspicions were confirmed. While my older niece attempted to compete at chess according to the actual rules of chess, my younger niece was indiscriminately capturing queens, rooks and pawns alike by simply "​jumping"​ them. She was playing "​chess"​ according to the rules of checkers. I recently watched, flabbergasted,​ as two of my nieces played a game of chess outdoors with giant chess pieces.
