RZA's WuChess.com: a Hip-Hop Chess Community

Wu Tang's RZA, also known as Robert Diggs, is bringing chess online with a new subscription chess site called WuChess.com

Here's how the site describes itself:

"WuChess.com is the worlds first online chess and Hip-Hop community. You can create and share profiles with your friends and triumph over enemies on the 64 squares. Not just against people in your neighbourhood but from all over the world... Play live chess with people from all over the world and get your learn on...

At Wuchess.com you can log-on to watch chess clans do battle on and check out exhibition matches with Rza, other Wu-Tang members and stars from across the planet. Though I'm acquainted with "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'," I did not realize that RZA was a chess enthusiast.

The site costs $48 a year, which doesn't seem entirely in the spirit of giving back to the community. You should at least be able to play free for a month in order to get hooked.

I am in the process of securing a guest membership and will report back from the chess chambers.
