I’ve recently gotten back into chess and man, do I stink! I used to be pretty good but now am just so bad! Hopefully, with some practice, I can get back to being a threat to normal chess players! I love the game and honestly don’t know why I quit. It may have been life getting in the way or maybe I lost my edge and decided to take a break? Who knows now, it’s been years since I played regularly but I am hoping to get back into it during some downtime. I think it does help me unwind and get my brain juices flowing.
For those of you who are curious or just want to try your hand at the game, you can go to chess.com and watch some informational videos and play against either a computer or someone else. You could do some chess puzzles and mini-games! It’s a wonderful resource for anyone who is a great chess player, someone who enjoys a fun game, or anyone interested in learning how to play! I have been watching the educational videos on the basics. I think I will get the hang of the game again eventually!
The biggest reason why I like the game so much is due to the strategy aspect. I am a lover of history and of course, that means ancient warfare! I also like logic puzzles and find that chess is a game where you can always learn! The game teaches you about yourself! Something that it is teaching me right now, is that I don’t pay attention to my surroundings well enough. That fact is the main reason why I keep losing. I don’t pay attention enough to what my opponent is doing!
Either way, I am enjoying the game again and hope that you now have a good resource for learning a wonderful game that has been around for hundreds of years!
As always, Be Strong and Courageous
