Wordless Wednesday 23: Checkmate

As you may remember from our ultimate Canadian Pilgrimage this summer, Medicine Hat, Alberta is home of the world’s largest teepee.

Moses & Alma

Moses & Alma

But what you may not know: they also boast a giant chess set.


I kind of doubt it’s the world’s largest, but you never know.

    Oh how funny. A lively chess set, indeed! They “sit” beautifully. My girl would never do that. And they are the perfect size for the board (as it is).

  2. Great shots! Alma and Moses probably are the world’s fluffiest chess pieces, if not the world’s largest!

    Love these pictures! That is a really big teepee. Moses and Alma make great chess pieces. That had to be a fun game.

    What are the rules for moving an Alma and a Moses in chess? You got a great angle on that teepee!

  6. They make lovely chess pieces. Are they knights?

  7. Dark knights… BOL. Moses and Alma remind me of my brothers!

  8. I knew it! As soon as I saw the title of this post I knew they would be on a chess board and I was instantly jealous!! Gosh darn it Jen, I love these pictures! You are so creative!

  9. Love the pictures of your Moses & Alma – they’re do handsome (and pretty). They fit right in on the chess board!

  10. Wow, they are into giant size stuff there, aren’t they.

    I love that Moses and Alma are the perfect size to be chess pieces! Are they knights? Pawns? I can’t see them as pawns …
