National Chess Day

Celebrated every second Saturday in October, National Chess Day falls on October 12 this year. Despite its limited pieces and straightforward layout, chess has intrigued players and spectators for centuries, earning the title of a complex art. Former President Gerald Ford aptly noted, "For both professionals and amateurs, chess is a game that sharpens the mind, tests human faculties, and encourages healthy competition. It has captivated the attention of players and spectators worldwide and will continue to do so as long as competition and excellence challenge mankind."
