Besides being a great game that is easy to learn and fun to play, did you know that playing chess is considered to be very beneficial to your mind!
Chess is a wonderful way of exercising the brain. It is universally considered as one of the best games to keep your mind active and to maintain your mental sharpness and clarity (say no to mental fatigue and Alzheimer's!).
Chess encourages you to explore new ideas, to be inventive and creative, and to use your imagination. And, of course, winning at chess improves your self-confidence and self-esteem and gives you a great sense of achievement when you outwit your opponent.
