There is more to Thailand than beaches and nightlife. More people play chess in Thailand than in many western countries – but they play a rare variant of asian chess with some obscure rules. Here at the Phuket Chess Club we play international chess, blitz and long games.
We have standard international chess sets and FIDE approved chess clocks available for any who would like to join.
There are also other games available, like Connect4, and an 8-ball pool table
