Shanghaiist believes there are enough “solitary geniuses” in the world of chess. So does our friend Wayne, who is trying to launch the Shanghai Chess Club. He recently sent us this email:
Shanghai Chess Club meets twice monthly. All levels of international chess and Chinese chess are welcomed. Membership is free. For more information contact: [email protected]
So, now all you chess-starved Shanghai ren can leave your computers, end your games of correspondence chess and play against actual people. Shanghaiist: Helping bring like-minded people together since October 2005.
