Jun 04, 2020, 04:50 PM

Increments, the longest-running chess column, codebreaking, and how to teach kids appear this week. Some might say this is far too many topics for one episode, but the boys are brave souls.


Nobody really wants to hear about Chris's memory, Jon's artistry, or Phil's waistline. But we're afraid that's what's on offer this week alongside the standard mixture of whimsy and vaguely-chess-related mutterings.
