How About a Nice Game of Chess?

It's time to announce GameSquad's fourth annual chess tournament! If you've ever wanted to try your hand at the Royal Game, now is your chance! Our tournament is a friendly & leisurely affair that features a good mix of players that will allow all skill levels - from rank beginners to expert players - to have a good time.
This year's tourney will be a bit different in that it will be a Chess960 tourney. Chess960 - aka Fischer Random Chess - differs from classical chess in that the starting position of the pieces is randomized. Such a random set-up negates opening book preparation, something that helps even the field between practiced and inexperienced players. So, again, this is a golden opportunity for new players to have some black & white fun!
