Chess

Chess is one of those things that everyone seems to know how to do except me. I've tried to learn at different times over the years, but each time I find someone with a chess set and the knowledge and patience to teach me, I get a few lessons and then we end up in different countries and that's the end of my chess for another few years. By the time I get to have another go I don't remember anything and I'm back to square one.

I've been on the lookout for a cheap chess set that I can start to play around on and try to teach myself a few moves using the internet and books. Last night I was in Tesco and found a game that combines chess, draughts and backgammon. It isn't anything fancy but it's all I need for starters. It should have been a tenner but was marked down to £2.50 - how could I resist? So I now have one less excuse to put off finally learning how to play chess.
