why is chess fun

I think that chess is really fun because you get to play agents each other, play with each other, or play with a friends

Absolutely not true, not in my case anyway. Losing just encourages me to improve.

Truth! Though I'm glad there are a lot of folks out there optimistic enough to feel the other way.

Chess is fun because it is an age-old, elegant game of strategy and tactics, played upon a perfectly sized, symmetrical battlefield (board), with just the "right kind" (and number) of pieces.

Combined with ideal rules of play, the end result is a beautiful "work of art" that results in games that express the hopes and dreams — and fears — of its participants.

Begin playing as young as you can so that you'll be rewarded by your understanding of the game long into your life.

And to think that you can now play people from all over the world at the click of a button... it boggles the mind.

It's fun for me because there are myriad ways to enjoy it. Puzzle rush, tactics, reading books about great players, analyzing games, playing OTB, playing daily (correspondence), playing blitz with opponents from all over the world, watching videos, teaching younger players. I could go on and on. The point is, no matter whether you're a GM or a patzer (I'm closer to the latter), there's infinite variety in the game. As a great GM said, "Chess is an ocean where an elephant may bathe and a gnat may drink."
