Renaissance Knights had an
exhibit at the Chicago Toy & Game Convention at Navy Pier November 21-22. We set
up a giant sized chess set that kids especially enjoyed playing with. We
met a lot of people and gave them fliers about the chess classes we teach in
Chicago area schools, and about our upcoming events.
We found that among all the high-tech toys and new board games, people who
love toys and games still love chess! Kids and adults alike eagerly
challenged our expert instructors to a game throughout the weekend -- the
games with Stormtroopers always drew a lot of attention. We also had the
chance to teach kids how to play chess. We were very pleased when we heard a
group of kids, when asked what their favorite exhibit was, enthusiastically
Renaissance Knight looks forward to continuing to work with the Chicago Toy
& Game Convention in the coming years.
