Chess is an incredible game...but with all the smartphones, Xboxes, iPads, and iPods out there, it sometimes gets lost in the shuffle. In fact, games don't have to be played in high def or with high-tech controllers to be fully engaging. Chess is one of those games.
With a simple board and 32 pieces, chess continues to captivate amateurs and grandmasters alike. All you need is a basic knowledge of how the pieces move, a fair amount of concentration and insight and you have become a viable chessplayer.
CPA is about reenergizing our passion for chess and having lots of fun in the process.
CPA is meant to be an aggregation of chess players throughout the Boston area who probably do many other things but still maintain a passion for chess.
On a bi-weekly basis, members will come together to challenge each other to friendly chess matches and conversation. Tournaments will be organized as membership allows.
