Whose King Will be Left Standing?

I love board games, and to me it doesn't matter who wins or loses. As long as we have fun, that's all that counts. Most of the time. There is the occasional exceptional, one of which is chess. Why? Because it is a game of strategy. It involves thought, and the need to use your intelligence. The winner of a chess matches proves themselves superior to their opponent.

And if there is one person I like to feel superior to, it is my dad. Unfortunately, when we play chess, he is usually the victor. When I do come up trumps, however, I get a great feeling of satisfaction.

If you or yours kids are also competitive chess players, then why not drop in to the Museum of Childhood for a game or two? On the 3rd, 17th, and 31st August, this nostalgic memory house is running a free Family Chess Club. Play against your kids, seek out a new opponent, or if you have never played before, now is the perfect time to learn; chess coach, Richard Weekes, will be there to show you how to start a game, provide tactical tips, and teach you some strategic skills.
