In Focus: Check mate?

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.
