We’ve been on a bit of a chess kick lately and our editors have reviewed several chess stores online over the past few weeks. Personally for me, this has been due to the Christmas shopping season, as I was planning on using chess as a sort of theme for a few of my nepohews gifts.
However today I found a chess site which doesn’t have anything to sell. Instead they give away, for free, knowledge, facts, and information about chess and game related topics.
Brain rook is a seamlingly simple website, and yet it contains a wide variety of quality, useful information. They cover every variant of chess including extinction chess, anti chess, horde chess, and ambiguous chess, as well as information on the standard game. They also cover backgammon, checkers, poker, and a lot of different novelties and games.
I really found it interesting that someone had taken the time to compile all of this info in one easy to use place. If your looking for some info on just about any game out there, and you don;t want to have to trudge to a bookstore for the right to hand over $20 bucks, you might want to take a look at brainrook.com
