What is a Skill You Would Like To Learn?

Chess The defining strategy board game for centuries, chess has created a huge impact on modern culture and is played by millions of people. Worldwide tournaments are held to see who the most skilled chess player in the world is. Played on an 8x8 grid by two players, each with 16 pieces: 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Knights, 2 Rooks, 2 Bishops, and 8 Pawns. Each of these six different pieces moves and behave differently than the others. Some can only move in straight lines, or only diagonally. The game ends by checkmate, which means that the opponent’s King can no longer avoid being captured by your pieces. There are hundreds of strategies and theories that may be used to achieve a checkmate, and most of them have continually evolved strategies as the game progresses, i.e., “If the opponent does this, I need to do this.” There are several free chess software available online and on your phone.
