Chess is the only "Game" that when I win I'm proud of myself.
I remember when I beat my Grandad for the first time to this day
As I never thought I would ever achieve such a feat.

Checkers or Draughts as I've always called it prepared me for Chess I believe
Much more simplified but still pretty hard given the right opponent.
I remember growing up playing my next door neighbour I must have played him 100 times
Didn't beat him once.
Backgammon however I have never played.

Yes.

So many things to learn from Life through Chess.

Greater Good
Sacrifice
Protection
Teamwork
Deception
Honour
Respect
Reflection
Revenge
Loyalty
Traits
Rankings
Weak Spots
Personality
Preference
Female Power

I play quite a bit....I've always believed Chess to be much more than a game.
