This Week's Cartoon

We may be the only chess website in the UK to employ a resident cartoonist, Dee Jay, who used to be an art teacher in his youth. The cartoons, in black ink and watercolour, combine thoughts on the noble game with local interest. Click on the image to enlarge and here for the cartoon archive. The victims of any satirical cartoon are welcome to request the original drawing on art paper.

    Online Chess

    In order to provide somewhere for local players to play now that meetings and social gatherings have been shut down for the foreseeable future, we have set up Cornwall Chess Online so that organised chess can continue in the county. A Cornwall team has been created on lichess.org. Instructions on how to join lichess and the Cornwall team and enter a tournament are here.

    Links to upcoming events and other information are in the right-hand column of this page.

    A list of members with their user names is here. When we are able to resume over the board play, Cornwall Chess Online will continue.


    Spurious Games

    Our County Association president David Jenkins has published Spurious Games (Troubadour Press), a novel with relevance to the local chess scene. You can find more information here.
