Learn to Play Chess

COMPLETED BY 152

LISTED 137

Not for nothing is chess known as "the game of kings." No doubt the rulers of empires and kingdoms saw in the game fitting practice for the strategizing and forecasting they themselves were required to do when dealing with other monarchs and challengers. As we learn more about the brain, some are beginning to push for chess to be reintroduced as a tool in the public's education.

With benefits like these, they have a strong case.

  1. It can raise your IQ
  2. It exercises both sides of the brain
  3. It increases your creativity
  4. It improves your memory
  5. It increases problem-solving skills

When I was a little boy (about 6-7 years old), my father realized, that he can make me and my brother to learn to play chess and as a prize the winner will get some chocolate.

I always played against my dad as a child and he obviously always won. Was great fun. I don't know the exact date of when I learned to play for the first time but do know it has been many many years ago

Chess isn't that hard to learn, it's hard to master.
