I recently saw this video
https://youtu.be/eh8U6SLvNgs

I realized that I never learned how to play chess. Nobody in my family plays it anymore so I never bothered to learn. But after reading so many amazing stories about this game I really felt urge to learn it and get decent at it.
Couple of days ago I started playing regularly on lichess; I'm still really bad but it has been lots of fun so far.

Do you have any interesting stories about chess? Any tips for beginner like me?
Lets have a thread about comfiest game ever.

Don't have any tips, but I'm kinda one step behind you. Been getting bored of video games the past years and almost never play, but been having cravings for something to replace it with, and chess seems like it could be it. Also would be a good way to meet new people, video games don't have that aspect mostly.

Have seen this recommended, free (legal/official) online version of a dudes books:

seemed good when I gave it a quick lookover, just haven't been motivated enough to give it the needed real effort yet.

Yeah we are pretty much in same situation

I will definitely look at it

Also not sure is it just me or it's common among beginners but I play most of the game really good and I am in wining position but then I just throw it the whole game with one stupid move

Lichess is great web server if you're looking for matches, also has a few tutorials and learning resources too.

Go is worth looking into too - since there's so many possibilities in any particular board-state there's much less memorizing openings and strategies; it's more about good pattern recognition.

I never really learned to play, but I have this old chess board I bought at a flea market as a teen. The angles on the pieces are so sharp so it's kinda difficult to catch them on picture, looks better IRL.
Figure maybe I should start to learn to get some use out of it.
