Christopher’s Journal (Prequel to The Al Clark Series)
Chris is nursing a badly sprained ankle and has time to kill, so he created his own Chessboard and pieces. He and his father played chess when Chris was younger and those days he remembers fondly. Playing against himself is not as fun, but it passes the time. The diagrams at the top helped to reintroduce him to the game.
He cut the chess pieces from paper, with the ‘black’ pieces dyed using coffee grounds from a pre-packaged breakfast. Although crude, it’s good enough to play the game.
