9 Queens is dedicated to empowering individuals and communities through chess by making the game fun, exciting, and accessible.
“I became interested in chess when I was about four. I like chess bc you get to have fun and learn some things. You get to be more patient. You get to focus and concentrate. ”
We love chess and we think everyone –
yes everyone – can learn something from the game. Whether you are a total newbie to the game, a wannabe Bobby Fischer, or a closeted chess player who barely remembers the rules, we want you to play chess with us!
If you don’t know how to play chess, it is easy to learn. Below is the famous 8 Queens Puzzle, which is challenging for beginners and serious chess players as well. If you don’t know how the queen moves, check out this sample lesson from our 9 Queens Passport, an instructional booklet that teaches you everything you need to know to become a beginner player.
