The Other Special Olympics

The 9th Mind Sports Olympiad is currently underway at the Manchester Conference Centre in Manchester, England. Competitions are taking place in Abalone, Aquire, Age of Steam, Backgammon, Boku, Bridge, Carcassonne, Chess, Continuo, Creativity, Cribbage, Decamentathlon, Diplomacy, Dominoes, Draughts, Entropy, Go, Historical Games, Intelligence, JKLM Taster, Lines of Action, Lost Cities, Mastermind, Mental Calc, MSO-Con, Nubble!, Othello, Oware, Pacru, Pentamind, Poker, Puerto Rico, Quiz, Rummikub, Settlers, Skat, Speed Reading, Stratego, Triolet, Twixt, and Victor Ludorum.

I suppose for a change of pace the club could hold a combined Chess/Age of Steam tournament (Age of Steam? I wonder if it has anything to do with those manhole explosions in the North End).

Here's the schedule of chess events.
