Chess is so cool...even via phone

Hello Everyone,

Here is one of the cutest-sweetest adverts of the British Telecom from the late 90s. Ever played chess with a friend via short messaging service? Or, late into the night on the phone? Or, maybe via fax and email?

Correspondence chess meant days and weeks waiting for moves if you wanted to play someone in another city or another country.

Ten years ago it was one big deal to be able to communicate across the globe like that. No more. Today, you're online 24x7 and can stay connected with anyone, anywhere, anytime. Great for chess players.

Here's some chess with 'extra help' provided to our young friend. But dad won't mind if he finds out, we suppose!

Check it out!

All we'll say after that video is stay in touch, send us all your chess ideas and keep playing chess.
