It has become one of my favourite activities. I learned it, when I was going to elementary school. I was very young, but I can still clearly remember our sessions, and the book I was reading on chess and its key moves. It was years later that I started playing it again - and now it has became a favourite past-time. I may not win frequently, but I love it nonetheless. Besides, that is the essence of playing games.
