Aloha everyone! The title says chess friends, but my only problem is I have none. All my friends don't play chess. It would be nice if I had a buddy to play over the board or analyze a game. So I was looking at chess clubs in my area....and found one. They meet at the mall every Wednesdays. Have not went to one yet, not sure what to expect. Do you just walk up to a stranger, introduce yourself, and start playing chess. Is that how it works?
