Brisbane City Chess is purely about relaxed social chess. There is no money involved. We are not an official chess club and we don’t keep score.

What we like most of all is to be the cause of a dormant chess player starting to re-learn the game and play semi-regularly again. We try to do this by way of a pleasant new social aspect to chess.

Chess draws in brave and curious people. Chess players more often only speak when they have something to say. The extraordinary personalities that are attracted to chess are the raw ingredients for fun, friendly, social chess.

We are willing to get outside of our comfort zone and we try to be good losers. Remember that social chess is sometimes about giving your opponent a break, like some extra time or an encouraging word. Sunday is our most regular meetup, but we are always seeking input to find new times and places to play.

Don't worry, if you know how to play, you are good enough.

Get behind the always free social chess movement in Brisbane. Everyone is welcome. Chess does not discriminate, except on the board.
