    I was in town for work in October and got to go the Living Like Kings opening reception. While there, I was went up to the Bobby Fischer display and got to look around. It was pretty cool.

    In a recent issue of Chess Life I noticed that the WCHOF is now selling some collectibles such as jackets, t-shirts, mugs etc etc. Some nice stuff there.

    I purchased a t-shirt when I was there. Bought an XL but after the first wash it fits me like a medium Embarassed

    Not sure if this has been posted or not but they have a Flickr account so you can see some pictures of the site and events they hold:

    The Chess HOF will soon switch over to a new special exhibit. Many years ago ivory was used to create many items of great beauty including Chess pieces and boards. Today it is of course illegal to trade in ivory but there are still a lot of these rare pieces in private collections and some of these items will soon be on display at the HOF.
