Chess & Bridge

    It’s safe to say, that what Chess & Bridge’s owner Malcolm Pein doesn’t know about chess isn’t worth knowing. A former international master of chess, Pein writes a national newspaper column devoted to the subject and campaigns to make chess more widely available in schools. Operations Manager Tao Bhokanandh is also very knowledgeable, and is involved in organizing high-profile competitions including ‘chess boxing’ (where opponents alternately play rounds of chess and physically fight each other). The store boasts many beautiful chess sets on display by well-known chess makers such as Jaques of London, as well as many themed sets ranging from Lord of the Rings to Alice in Wonderland. They also stock the latest chess software and state of the art computers (including one with a special motorized arm). For serious competitors, there are also numerous chess books on strategy and technique, as well as many others on different subjects such as bridge and poker. And if you’re looking for an unusual party game to entertain family and friends, then Chess & Bridge is where you’ll definitely find one. With a resident games expert on hand to give advice, they stock a diverse range of board games, role-playing games, strategy games and quiz games, in addition to special editions of well-known classics like Scrabble, Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit.Show lessRead more
