Do any of you play chess?

Post by Wd40 » Sun, 20 Jun 2021 1:40 am

I started playing on Chess.com as my daughter started learning chess and now I am seriously addicted to it. The last couple of days I am playing like crazy. You can play with random people all over the world and keep building your score. Its amazing.

Sounds fun! I love playing chess, but I usually like to play in person with friends. Now that that’s not really much of an option, I’ll give it a go.

It is also a good way to bond with my daughter. If I play against my daughter, she hates it if I defeat her, I then have to kind of give her many chances to undo her blunders.

Instead of this now we play as a team against someone online and it has been great. I see that in terms of anticipation she is now better than me, but still she makes blunders. So together we play against opponent and help each other out, its awesome.

My daughter has never really been into chess, she lost interest after checkers but maybe this will be a good opportunity for her to relearn the game and bond. Thanks for the recommendation!

Great way to bond with children without doing mindless activities.
