January 30th: Learn to Play Chess

So I’ve always to know how to play chess but it always seemed so intimidating. I found a website http://chess.com that teaches you how to play and then you play against a computer and it can give you tips and guide you with what moves to make.

I downloaded an app associated with that website today and have been playing games. I’m only at a beginner level but the more I play the more comfortable I get with making moves and protecting my King.

There is definitely a lot of strategy and it will take a while to really get the hang of it but I am excited to at least know the basics and get games going.

I have a friend that plays regularly and actually have on my list to play him this year. It just might take a while to get enough confidence to play him.
