There's actually a "World chess federation", which sounds like it's straight out of HxH or something. They award titles based on your achievements. If you're a woman, you can also quality for the weaker titles with less skill, such as "Woman grandmaster" or "Woman candidate master".

Chess is too limited. It's fun to play it when you're an amateur going against another amateur. But as soon as you learn the "5 moves check mate," "7 moves check mate," etc., it gets boring quick. Just the opening move, it's always the same.



I'm trying to learn playing Shogi. Even Go. They are challenging.

Go is tricky for me to learn. When I thought I have the hang of it, the results get flipped my way.

Did you know there's an opening called the Lolli Attack
