The idea behind this group is unity, as the name already implies. We want to form a group with all sorts of different levels, but with one common goal: To have members who put their best foot forward and who strive to treat every game as if it were the most important game and to make this group the most successful group in Chess.com, by not just thinking in the individual aspect of the game, but to experience to be part of a great group Playing chess in many expects is an individual activity. But the feeling to belong to a special group can create an extra dimension, like paying more attention and time to your games. A cohesive group is more than the sum of its parts, and synergy is the ability of a group to outperform even its best individual members. A group stands or falls with the participation of its members. In The Unit, YOU decide which other groups we challenge and YOU decide which thematic tournaments are created: http://www.chess.com/groups/home/the-unit
