I Play Chess Campaign

As a way to engage with all of our members and followers, we started our “I Play Chess” Campaign. We want to hear your stories about what you like about chess and why you play the game. Our goal is for people all over the world to share their stories about chess and how the game has impacted your life, your family, and friends!
