At the Royal Court, is a Mega – sized ( not cereal – box sized ) chessboard, with us Royal Subjects as the pieces. But, this not a game of moving, taking, and capturing pieces – this is a game of imagination, and copycattering!! There are hardly any rules, except for one: NO YAWNING ALLOWED!

You must not displease the Queen, or else, her “club” will come in search of your behind! You must be willing to take part! The Queen said, and I quote, “… I want FULL PARTICIPATION!” If you win the “curious game”, you will be crowned king/queen over all of … “BigNosePeople Land!” ( or at least, I think that’s what they are called….. )
