Saturday afternoons in Downtown Austin, Texas

The chess-battle rages like wildfire on Saturdays from 12:30 to 3:00. There's no telling who'll show up -- sometimes the players are new to the game, sometimes they're advanced, usually they're in-between -- so every game is an adventure.  Stop by next time you're around & join in!

There are also opportunities to volunteer with Giant Chess. Tasks include helping with the Web Site, and mostly attending on Saturdays to set up the chess set, interact with the public, and put the chess set away again.  We sometimes stage special Giant Chess events in other locations, and several volunteers participate in chess at other places around Austin.  Even without knowing much about the game, any responsible adult enthusiastic about learning can contribute.
