Chess is one of those games that always has eluded me.
I grew up in a family that played many games – board games, card games, word games – you name it.
But chess was never one of them.
I had a quick tutorial from a friend once in college about the chess pieces and which ones can move which way – that the rook moves horizontally or vertically, that the bishop moves diagonally, and so on.
Well, this past Tuesday, the Geneva High School Chess Club hosted a chess night for families at the high school, and I watched a 5-year-old teach a dad different strategies.
It was awesome to see the teacher become the student, and it just proves it’s never too late to learn a new game.
