Stress less Chess


A Christmas game had our family playing “Stress Less Chess” and it took a very black and white concrete set of rules and required your brain to view it completely differently.

You can protect no pieces.
Nothing is guaranteed.
You have to position risks and be willing to lose.
fail and fail again.

The game partners a stack of card with chess. play the card/piece you flip. So a bishop will win you the game, but you have to move your pawn, no confusion, no options. It is a game of constraint.

The December Focus of rethinking what is possible, reconsidering rules and being ready to fail… aligned with this game. It was an “Ah Ha” for our family.

You’d enjoy the game.

PS. Thank you for the gift of a lovely wine glass filled with water for all our holiday events.
