As subtle as a flying brick.

Sharpen Your Chess Game

Thumbnail image for 2008-11-28_000409.jpgWhether you’d like to increase your mental health
or just relax after a stressful holiday visit, there aren’t many games
more classic than chess. Over at tips and tricks blog MakeUseOf, they
have rounded up a variety of ways you can both play and sharpen your
chess game. The screenshot above is from FlashChessIII,
a beautifully rendered flash-based and free for download chess game. If
you’re concerned that all the playing in the world won’t make you any
better, they have a variety of resources listed for helping you not
just play but increase your grasp of the game. My favorite was Chess Problems,
a site which generates “puzzles” based on chess board setups ranging
from simple to extremely complicated. After some practice at Chess
Problems you won’t find yourself often staring down a chess board
without a clue what your next move will be. If you’re absolutely brand
new to the game, make sure to check out a beginner’s guide to getting good at chess.
