About the event
Happy New Years all you wonderful weirdos! We are excited to announce our first special event of the year is going to be a trans/non binary focused chess tournament and craft night. Chess/gaming has long been a valuable tool for building community and we want to start 2024 by celebrating that and creating an inclusive space for all. We will be collaborating with the amazing Prism Games, Craft Nite Collective, and Chicago Chess Foundation to make this one of a kind event happen.
