Outdoor Chess

A slice of Activity

With Indian workplaces struggling to cope with cut-throat competition and high attrition rates breaking teams, employee satisfaction has become one of the key factors for corporate entities. In recognition of the employees’ need to break away from schedule and relax, many companies are opting to organize corporate day outingtrips to interesting locations. These trips and activities help empower, leverage and maximise a high performing team.

Working through play

Just as each member of the team has a different role to play and skills to offer at the workplace, so do members of a sports team. Playing together helps the participants to understand what each team member brings to the team. At Discovery Village, we promote bonding within teams by organising games which call upon individuals to showcase their capabilities and word together to make things possible!

Black and White

Ranked among the best, outdoor chess is one of the most sought after activities at our adventure resort in Bangalore. The giant chess coins are eye-catching. This game requiresyou to home your perceptiveness and mental acuity besides encouraging other skills.The game of outdoor chess is mimics the board game, with two opponents playing on a lifestyle board drawn on the ground. A king, a queen, one pair each of rooks, bishops and knights, and 8 pawns make up the crew of each player. Each player strives to checkmate the king of the other player. To checkmate your opponent, you must force the king into a position to be captured (in check) from where he cannot escape!The rules of outdoor chess are the same as those of regular chess. Chess teaches you to seize the initiative, learn to spot patterns and not to underestimate your opponent. The game can go on from anywhere between 15 minutes to 2 hours.


So, taking time out to both play an exhilarating and mind-boggling game of chess or simply giving yourself the chance to step aside from life for a while is one of the finest gifts you can give to yourself.
