Playstation Home Chess Matches?

10 replies 805 views Edited Jun 4, 2013

A couple years ago I was able to play chess online via the playstation home world, and the chess boards were located n the mall.  I can't find any new chess boards, is there a new place were i can always find chess matches?

I think that there is a public space or two left with chess.  Have you considered setting up a club?

The ones in Indie Park seem to be the most popular ones, they're also located in the Playground space but thats a shady spot.

Also I believe there is an extra large chess set for use in private spaces. There may even be chess tables for sale as well. Check the Games store.

Also check the Home Events calendar as there is a user who organizes a "chess night" on Tuesdays. Hope this helps.

The Chess tables from the old Mall are currently in three spaces: The Adventure DIstrict, Playground, and Indie Park . Also, the Chess tables for purchase make it difficult to chat while playing -- the ones featured in public spaces are much smoother and do not restrict chat.

 

I'm sub-leader for a Chess Club in Home. Send a request to "Pandas Galore" if you're interested; we're always looking for strong players.

hey wardawg8181

 

Also as mentioned by Miss_Ann_Thrope about every Tuesday Patchex hosting chess matches (here is link to event calendar) at the Playground or the Adventure district. I will be attending there tonight at 9pm Eastern so you're welcome to follow me if you like and play some chess, just send me an xmb message.
