CHH CHH2145B Hardwood Chess Set with Handle, 16-Inch
Item model number: CHH2145B
Chess is a strategy game played by 2 people. The object of the game is to capture your opponent’s king.
Chess is a popular strategy game played by 2 people. It is a good game to have in the library because the two opponents can have quiet conversation while playing.
Also, I find the students will often play Chess on their computers, I think the physical board does encourage a connection with other people as students will often gather around and watch.
Defeat your opponent by capturing his king. Sounds simple but beware of the traps he is setting for you.
