Board games have been around for thousands of years, ever since the First Dynasty in Egypt. However, they serve more than just one purpose. Aside from being a source of fun and entertainment, board games can challenge a person’s intellect and measure how smart one really is. A perfect example of this type of game is chess.
Chess has been one of my favorite games to play ever since I picked it up in 6th grade. I’ve always enjoyed the complexity of the game, whether I win or lose a match. It’s been a long time since I have played chess on a regular basis, but now I am taking a class that relates chess to life. Now I get to enjoy one of my favorite games and really look into the process of knowing how to play chess.
Today’s class was a very interesting game of chess. I played another student in the class, and the game lasted the entire duration of class. The best part about it is that I ended up having three queens in the end, which I have never done before! Every game of chess you play will be different in some way, shape, or form.
