If you get bored with the game you can always play with the pieces.

       What would the pieces consist of?
xenzag, Jan 25 2013

       The gameboard would be a bit bigger than usual so the pieces are large enough to be played with separately.   

       Each sides' pieces would consist of an Architect, a Foreman(perhaps in a pickup truck), DumpTrucks, Loader/Backhoes, Bulldozers, and a bunch of Shovellers.   

       There's plenty of themes to choose from: Tonka (portrays standard modern equipment and is robust enough to be passed from generation of children to the next), Vintage (from the late 1800's, more display-worthy but still playable), and of course Army Construction Corps, which might be most apropos for a "war game".   

       (I left the post simple because it's a simple idea and I have some standard chesspieces sitting on the shelf just taking up space)

       //Tonka (in yellow/something), vintage (hand- painted late 1800's models)//   

       Wait. I mean really, just wait.   

       You're telling us this is to be done with _toy_ construction machinery?   

       I feel like like James Stewart in 'Flight of the Phoenix'.   

       I award a bone of bitter disappointment.

       I can't believe such a themed chess set doesn't exist. I couldn't find one that included a trebuchet either. [+]
