Lots of new people interested in chess lately due to Queen's Gambit. I would recommend that to anyone who hasn't watched it yet.

Netflix.

I just watched the first episode last night and I'm intrigued. I originally had doubts, but the Mrs. talked me into watching it with her.

I use to play, you can really go down a rabbit hole analyzing the board and trying to determine your next move. I've watched a bunch of the "Queens Gambit" episodes and if you are familiar with chess you might find it entertaining. I've played single games that lasted 5 hours. I think limiting the time would be best, however I've never used the clock thingy. There use to be a bunch of guys who played at Barnes & Noble in Merritt Island on I think it was Sundays, of course that's a Aldis now.
