    Brought a chess board to the Media Center without much thought as to whether it would 'take off' or not. I enjoy playing a bit online, but am very much a novice at the game. Sure enough a couple of students are playing and even capturing the attention of others! Perhaps we'll turn those spectators into participants - I'm convinced that interest in this game can play a more important role than winning or losing (as are others) - it can keep our minds honed for thinking.

      Beautiful! I love the hand about to move the piece and the sense of depth of the board.
