In the book of Esther, a game of chess is being played, except with cosmic implications. Satan carefully moved Haman into position and gleefully hissed, “Check!” But we will see that God has his own plan and has a queen and a pawn moving in for the kill, or in chess language, “Checkmate!”
For Such a Time as This: If I Perish, I Perish

When I was in high school, I belonged to the chess club. Yes, I was a dork! But I truly enjoyed playing chess against my friends, especially in study hall.
