There’s a reason everybody wants to be white in chess. White goes first. It gives players a leg up in the game. And while it might seem coincidental or insignificant, something as simple as a single rule can be consequential.

Black people are underrepresented at elite levels of the game. There are only 3 Black grandmasters in the world of chess. Out of 1,721.

Why not try out one unofficial rule change? One that stands for inclusion. One that gives the other team a leg up. One that could inspire a new generation of younger players to fall in love with the game, and see success for themselves at its highest level.
