I remember seeing an episode of 'Land of the Giants' (which aired as re-runs in
the early '70s, I don't know when they were produced) in which the 'little'
people were tied to chess pieces (belonging to the giants) and a giant played
against one of the 'little' people (the boy with the dog I believe), and yes
you guessed it, for each piece the boy lost, the person attached to it was
killed. Funny, I don't remember to outcome of the game or the episode.
