People judge chess too much. I’ve met way too many people who think, Hey, it’s a board game, how fun can it be?
In reality, chess is very exciting to watch. Learning just the rules of chess makes you know about 1% of the game. There are tactics, traps, openings, pins, attack, defense, and so much other stuff that your head will blow up. No one knows everything about chess, even the greatest grandmasters. There are about 50 openings, each of them having about 5-15 lines. And I haven’t even mentioned the weird lines and openings.
Interesting…But how do I even START learning the game?
I’d recommend Chess.com. It’s a great site, and it includes lessons, videos, and a lot of things that can help you get started. In addition to that, you can play with other people who are also online.(It won’t take a very long time to find a match, there are tens of thousands of online people a lot of the time.) Though you can register for free, you won’t gain full access to the site. You have to pay for it, but in my opinion it’s a pretty good price.
I hope this post inspires you to learn the rules of this fascinating game. It gets too little attention for such a great sport, and it’s only because it’s a board game. It’s also considered a sport for nerds. But it’s not. So just give it a try! Who knows, you might even find your passion!
