Check, mate?

Like so many worthy things, the game of chess continuously phases in and out of our collective consciousness.  It certainly has its allure, and once you’re couched in the skills that you need, it is always there for you.  And, in many ways, it’s an international language.

But did you know that there is a chess hall of fame?  It’s not in one of the European cities, as you might expect.  It’s in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.  It also has the  world’s Largest Chess Piece (20 feet tall.)

The World Chess Hall of Fame (WCHOF) celebrates one of the world’s oldest and best-loved games through vibrant, engaging exhibitions and creative programming. A nonprofit, collecting institution situated in the heart of Saint Louis, the WCHOF houses both the U.S. and World Chess Halls of Fame, which honor the accomplishments of the game’s finest players.
