IT'S EDUCATIONAL, BUT MOST OF ALL IT'S FUN
We are chess lovers fascinated by the game of chess and its culture. The beauty of playing chess is that it is the best way of exercising your brain. In fact, scientific studies have shown that playing chess not only exercises both sides of your brain, but also can increase the level of your IQ. Chess is a universal language that helps participants communicate with anyone through the checkered board. Playing chess also boosts your creativity as it stimulates the right side of the brain, which is known as the creative side. Unlike other board games which can be repetitive and boring, there is no game in chess that is the same. That’s why we are passionate about chess. When you play chess, you are like a general leading an army to battle. You are in charge of defending them, sacrificing them, or order them to pin the enemy king.
