Online chess can be a great way to keep in touch with friends and keep your mind sharp during quarantine.

During Quarantine, video games have played a large role in preventing total boredom. Students around the world have been spending hours playing online games to fill in for the activities they used to participate in before the spread of COVID-19. Two of these students, Coleman Hanson ’22 and Robert Lydick ’22, spend hours on games like NBA 2k20 and Call of Duty, so the two decided to take on a game that requires much more skill and strategy than any Xbox game they could ever play. This game is called chess. Watch as Hanson and Lydick compete in one of the most world renowned games ever created.
