Paul Rudd and Stephen Hawking Play Quantum Chess. How Did I Miss This?

Paul Rudd and Stephen Hawking Play Quantum Chess Match

Have you ever heard of Quantum Chess? It’s a real game as if regular chess isn’t hard enough!

This awesome video pits actor Paul Rudd against noted Physicist Stephen Hawking in a epic game of Quantum Chess that determines our future. (Narrated by Keanu Reeves)

A great little video to start your weekend. I think wee should do more of this for regular chess. Although it has clearly been exploding in popularity in recent years, so many people feel that chess is so unapproachable. It reminds me of …

ChessUSA Spotlight on Brass and Metal Chess Sets

A spotlight on some of the many Staunton Brass and Metal Chess Sets at ChessUSA

Some of our new arrivals – that knight in my hand weights over 3lbs by itself!

With all the changes and new items over the past couple of years, it’s very easy to fall far – far behind.

A Chess Love Story?

It’s great when we can see some new and creative chess stories – this adorable video entitled “Illegal Move” isn’t just for chess enthusiasts – it’s the sort of thing i’d expect out of a pixar short!

We’re quite busy with the holiday season right now, so I don’t have a lot of time to talk. That being said, one of the other things I like to do – especially when i want to unwind – is play Dragon Age: Inquisition.

What does that have to do with chess sets and a chess store, you might ask?

While you’re out adventuring in the game, your NPC (non playing character) teammates will banter about with each other. You can have different folks on your mission, but if you have two of the NPC characters together – a big …

A chess match “loophole”? Understanding Touch Move during your Chess game
