What we're about

The ultimate game! This group is open to everyone; from those who have mastered each move to those who have never played. Chess is about continuous learning, creating a unique narrative through each game, and as an inherently a social game, meeting new people :-)

And don't fear if this group seems too highbrow, for all the concentration, memory, and problem solving you will gain from playing chess, we will balance that out with a beer!

Finally to quote a brilliant essay by Emma Pierson "A chess game is, in a way, very similar to a human life. Chess games are stories: brief, reckless, and dramatic, or long, slow, and careful. [...] chess, like life, is a mystery: there are more ways for a chess game to go than there are atoms in the universe. A chess game is a microcosm of life, decades of joy and tragedy condensed into a few hours."
