    Has anyone here played any chess. I was thinking about giving it a try and wondered if it was any good. I wonder if you could answer my queries below: -
    Are chess sets expensive and where might I purchase one. How do I know when I've found a good one and what to look for.
    Is it hard to play.
    Are there any ongoing costs?
    DO i need to buy any specialist or protective clothing such as a box maybe?
    Do I have to play on 64 squares or are there other sizes?
    Am I allowed to play members of my family?

    You can get sets for as little or as much as you want.
