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 answer "Chess!"
Renaissance Knight looks forward to continuing to work with the Chicago Toy & Game Convention in the coming years.
