Chess Compulsory In Armenian Schools: British Youth Go For Ludo Gold
“Teaching chess in schools will create a solid basis for the country to become a chess superpower.”
Sadly for Armenia, chess is not yet an Olympic sport and the Armenian Method will not turn boardgame prowess into gold.
You may well be a global superpower in chesss but the question remains: will anyone else notice?
We British are well versed in the disappointment at having your native talents overlooked in the greatest show on earth. We see Armenia’s chess with a snooker card and then trump it with darts, Ludo, ringing the bull, rounders and Terry Venables’ Football Manager.
You want a war for boardgame supremacy? You can’t handle it, Armenia…
