Chess is ~1,500 years old, yet remains (mostly) unchanged. It is the ultimate example of a user experience design, it transcends time and languages. The game itself is interaction design - there is an objective, but no clear path to get there - it's up to the player to make it happen. In the pandemic, interest in chess exploded. We'll delve into why and how chess has so much to offer in terms of thinking about usability and what we can learn today from the game in terms of UX.
