Today’s chess consists of 64 squares and 32 pieces in total. The number of pieces in modern chess is 8x8. By higher versions I mean those variants having greater number of squares and pieces and complexity. Like for example say 9x9, 10x10 and so on.

But higher versions may not be possible because it takes abundant resources to manufacture chess equipment but actual resources are scarce. Production of chess equipment require raw material which is difficult to find. Physical creation of the board and the pieces needs matter – solid or liquid or gaseous. Matter is that which occupies space and possesses rest mass, especially as distinct from energy. But does so much matter really exist?
Can't you just make the squares smaller?
