Did you begin playing chess online through the pandemic after binging “The Queen’s Gambit”? If you have recently fallen in love with chess, but are only playing online; it’s time to check in with your local chess club to see if they offer over the board play.
The pandemic drastically affected over the board play with chess clubs all over the US. Some started back to over the board play last summer while others are starting back this year.
Chess is fun online, but we encourage over the board play as well. There is nothing like playing chess with people in your community. The skill levels vary and offer games that will test your abilities.
Playing chess over the board will have you visualize the board from a 3- dimensional perspective. This perspective can help you improve your game. Don’t believe us — just give it a try and let us know what you think.
