To many people chess is a pleasant pastime, a board game they can play with a friend. Others see it as a form of art, a theme that inspires literary pieces, dance and music performances, paintings and even blockbuster movies. To plenty it is a sport, an Olympic game, a career. It is also an educational methodology, taught in schools for improving life skills.
