Take that! Last week farmers in a Spanish village invited two players for a game of chess and replicated their moves on a giant field using tractors and other agricultural machinery as pieces, according to chessbase.com.
For the second time this year, the 250-odd farming families in Hinojosa, a sleepy little village in Guadalajara province, decided to organise such a unique game of chess.
Thirty-two farming machines, ranging from tractors to cultivators and harvesters, stood purring on a giant chess board --- ready to ride according to the moves made by the young players.
While the players sat in a tent, the moves were relayed back to the field using walkie-talkies, and the drivers moved their machines accordingly. The entire event was shot using crane cameras.
