That Ancient Game of Kings and Mooses


My uncle Daniel’s regional chess news and stragety site,, just won an award from the Chess Journalists of America for best state website!

Why am I so excited about this? Well, because my uncle is an amazing and cool guy, and I’m proud of him. He put an incredible amount of effort into this site, not just in terms of all the photos, articles, interviews, game transcripts, etc, etc, that he’s produced in the year and a half since the site’s inception, but also the many strange and newfangled technologies he’s had to master to make it all available in online form. All of which I have been in a position to witness firsthand, since I helped design the site and set it all up and showed him how to use it.

Which brings me to the other reason I am excited: because it gives me an excuse to show off the Moose Knight.

Yar. I’ve already got him on a t-shirt. Now I’m just waiting for the day I get to replace the boring horse knights in my chess set with mooses.
