Professor Puzzle of the UK, known mostly for wood and metal brain teasers, also has a line of giant garden games. Several should be available in the United States next month.
Giant Chess ($50 retail) features a weatherproof mat and light plastic pieces with a 5½ inch king.
The Jenga-like Toppling Tower game ($50) starts out at 2 feet tall and is made of light beechwood, so it shouldn’t hurt when it does topple.
Also made of beechwood are the Giant Dominoes—set of 28 double-sixes for $30.
