When ANYTHING (chess,tennis, guitar playing) is taken to an extremely high level it could be said to be building spiritual strength as well as mental (I wouldn't say so though). Whether it does or not, chess is no different from anything else in this respect.

i believe that chess builds spiritual strength as well as mental.. what are your thoughts?
Only when you learn not to cheat, abuse vacation, and play out lost games ... grasshoppa.
There's no such thing as spiritual strength.

there's no such thing as spiritual strength, I agree there with sconsc.. And chess does open the mind: intelligence, patterns recognition and stuff.

I also believe that
a lot of you have really good insight. i don't know what i was thinking spiritual strength is since it was posted in Aug. 2007.
