Our chess store was in the news, and other cool things!
It’s been a busy month here at Your Move Chess & Games. We’ve been slowly cleaning up and recovering from the holiday madness, and it brings us to a time of reflection of where we are, what our plans are, and how we can make things different (and hopefully better).
The process was interrupted a little bit when there was a request from a local newspaper, The Massapequa Observer, came to do a little piece on our chess store.
We’ve actually been in the news several times …
If you’re interested in chess camp, or chess after-school activities – this is for you!
One of the things we would most like to improve on in our chess store is the social aspect of chess & games. I would absolutely love to have an area for people to play chess, demo unique and exciting board games as an opportunity to try-before-you-buy, or even have a place for a chess club or gaming club to meet.
Hopefully one day we will expand in that direction. For now we’re just packed to the brim with inventory, we just do not have …
Board Games at Your Move Chess & Games
It’s been several weeks since I’ve put up a post and I apologize – keep your eyes peeled on this spot. I have some great ideas for posts coming soon.

I just wanted to briefly post about Hurricane Sandy – as you well may know, our chess store is located on Long Island and is thus right in the middle of it all.
Due to that, our access to the store has been seriously restricted. Although we’ve been out of operation for a couple of days, the store has now reopened but it will take some time to get everything back to 100%. Things are slowly getting back to normal and I appreciate all of the well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers from everyone. As you can imagine, there is a bit …
I’ve been working here at Your Move Chess and Games for over half my life now, and one of the things I have appreciated about this business is not only how unique we are as a business, but also our drive to adapt and change over time so we can stay relevant. So, with that in mind – after 34 years in business we’re taking the social media plunge, starting with a blog written by yours truly.
So, what can you expect from a chess store blog?
That’s a great question, and in all honesty one I have had to …
