Back to basics...

A student is admiring my Ra board.
"Is that signed by Reiner Knizia?" he asks. It is. He even pronounces the name correctly.

I mention that at home, I also have a chessboard signed by Garry Kasparov.
The student asks, "who's that?"


Just when I think I've got this education thing down, I find out that there's more work to do.

I think the lesson here is: just because you're interested in games, doesn't mean you follow famous chess players. Also: just because you know famous players doesn't mean you know famous designers (and vice versa). Who designed chess, after all?
