Checkmate! This looks pretty cool. If you've got a chess player at your house you'll have to check out this new chess-themed cafe getting ready to open in the Boise Towne Square Mall. 

Chess Cafe will be located right by Old Chicago near the main entrance. A small 700-square-for space coffee shop with chess tables set up so you can enjoy a match or two while you sip your latte.

The game of chess for me has always had a special place in my heart. I learned when I was fifteen years old and I was trying to impress a boy who loved to play the game.

I picked it up again as I tried to connect with my young son. I'm not good at it, but I have so many great memories of the game and even today when there is nothing to do we'll pull out the old chess board and play a game or two.

No word yet on when the Chess Cafe is set to open, but according to the cafe is near completion so it should be too long of a wait.
