We are often caught up in our lives and we forget to stop and enjoy the pretty things that are around us. Since we spend so much time on the internet, we tend to forget that we can spend time with the ones closest to us, actually talking and interacting in ways that are more akin to the way we interacted before smartphones.

One of the ways to pass the time with those close to us is a good game of chess. Chess is a great mind game that can have a physical toll if it is long and has difficult problems. It is also a very social game, where you always have an opponent on the other end.

Chess is relatively popular nowadays, but nowhere nearly as popular as it should be. As a thinking game, it is a great exercise for the young and old.

My name is Richard, and I hope to share the love of chess with you, as well as other interesting board games.
