Chess – French Style



     Chess_-_strategic_board_game_for_two_playersAs some of you may know, I am into chess. But there definitely is a difference between playing chess here and playing chess back at home. The one that I am bringing up is the name difference. If you didn’t know, chess is based off of a battle of two kingdoms. And the bishop’s name, in France, is the Fou (Pronounced Foo). That literally translates to crazy, insane, or even demented. But who wants someone insane and demented person in their own castle!
