With with the prevalence of smartphones and internet-connected computers, chess is no longer a game that requires two players sit at the same table. But while that means we can play more games, it also means less face-to-face connection. Chess Forum is New York City’s last chess shop, and it’s run by Imad Khachan, a man proud of what the chess shop offers people: the chance to connect. Lonelyleap takes you inside the shop to meet some of the regulars and, through chess, shows something the world is losing as we become more reliant on our devices.
