Chesslife is popping up in December as part of the 2014 Lidums Australian Young Masters Tournament being held at the University of Adelaide. The Young Masters will be on their indoor boards etching out their skills in the indoor environment, while the outdoor gardens will host an opportunity for wanna-be chess masters to show their wares. Discover this new and exciting approach to chess.
Take this chance to see how much fun chess can be, train your brain and play against your friends. There will be giant chess pieces, three-way chess, blitz games and coaching sessions. Colour in your favourite chess piece or just learn a few tricks that will lift your game to the next level.
