The first round of the Lindores Abbey Chess quiz is over. To celebrate the rich history of chess, the Lindores Abbey Preservation Society has compiled a list of chess questions on topics ranging from past World Champions to chess in culture, literature and film. The three overall winners of the quiz will receive a premium quality chessboard designed by 12th World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov, complete with a certificate of authenticity, and an overall value of around 3,000 EUR.
The daily winners receive:
The Magnus Touch Chessable course
A CoChess Coaching session
A €50 gift certificate for the chess24 shop
Round 2 will start at 17.00 CEST on May 25 and is open to everyone, regardless of whether you took part in Round 1. Each day, participants will have to find the correct answers to three questions, with the winners determined by their overall score on the four quiz days. In case of a tie, the first person to submit their answers will win the prize.
The quiz features easy, medium and difficult questions. While correct answers to easy questions grant participants 1 point, difficult questions can range from 2 to 5 points, depending on the depth of the answer.
Participants need a registered chess24 account and have one hour to submit their answers here:
Good luck for Round 2!
