CHESS is not a game, it is a battle! CHESS - It is a good idea to be able to play Chess. If you don't know how to play chess, it's a good idea to learn. Regardless of your age, the ability to play chess is a recommended skill to have. You do not need to be a high-IQ intellectual genius to play chess, (but it helps). Chess is FUN, and however good or bad you are at chess you are likely to find some people and/or computers who are going to lose when playing you and some that are going to win when playing you. Playing chess stretches your mind and will make you more clever. So, PLAY CHESS!
Here are a few CHESS LINKS, which have been put here at random to start with. There's also a set of helpful hints and tips on HOW TO PLAY CHESS. What is required here is a HOW TO PLAY CHESS tutorial. Recommendations anyone?
