Growing up, I used to play chess with my dad. It’s one of my favorite memories of our time together, and I remember dreaming about becoming a chess master.
That said, I never bothered to actually learn any proper strategy, so my mastery remained firmly in my mind. I still wonder from time to time whether I could become a half-decent chess player, but my skills are basic—at best. Let’s face it: I just know the rules. Barely.
I’d like to improve my skills, but at the moment, I don’t have a chessboard or anyone with whom to play. Tonight, I’ll settle for a game on my phone.
