Good morning, campers! Today is International Chess Day and there are celebrations going on all around the world to honor our game! Not sure how to celebrate the day? Here are a few suggestions to get you going:
- Play chess online via Chess.com, lichess, chess24, or any of the myriad of online platforms available.
- Join your local chess club. If you’re not sure how, just do a Google search for your city/town + “Chess Club” and you’ll most likely find something to get you started.
- Play in a local over-the-board tournament.
- Play with a friend.
- Watch a chess movie! Pawn Sacrifice, Dangerous Moves, Searching for Bobby Fischer, or the Knights of the South Bronx come to mind.
Whatever your passion, there’s plenty to do today to celebrate chess!
