Sam bought the family the best Christmas gift ever – a chess game. Chess?! The closest I’ve come to understanding chess is watching all episodes of The Queens Gambit.

Chess has always frighten me. The pieces are many, have funny names and can go in different directions – all in different ones. It’s all just so confusing. And for 45-ish years I have done the best I could to avoid it. Until tonight. When I played my first game ever.

I lost of course, but in 30 min I learnt what the game is all about (had no clue) know how the different pieces move (but I still mix up the rook and the bishop. I hope that we will play a lot- board games are so much fun.
