Chess & Backgammon
The Chess Area, located in the 40th Street Plaza, provides the public with chess, checkers, and backgammon boards for a small fee. The area is monitored by game aficionados from The Marshall Chess Club. Games can be arranged through the monitor, and tournaments and events take place throughout the summer.
