Expanding The Game
you can help and be a part of it
We are raising funds by pooling relatively small financial contributions because participating in Chess is as important as the support- so we want to get your attention! Something we discovered when forced to play online was that, in addition to being a great version of Chess, it brought the game into modern times. By making entry-level play easier and by growing this electronic version, the game itself will grow exponentially, and that is something worth doing.[bg_collapse expand_text="READ MORE" collapse_text="CLOSE" icon="arrow" ]

Challenges faced by New Millennium Chess
No doubt, launching any business amid a pandemic isn’t ideal. But the timing has given us this valuable insight: What we do – teaching chess and organizing play – lends itself beautifully to a special version of online action. Pair that realization with the unprecedented, current interest in the game of chess, and there’s really no better time to make the gambit and go online.[/bg_collapse]

How Does It Work?
New Millennium Chess has (with Grandmaster Susan Polgar’s approval) “tweaked” the game a bit for online play, all while retaining all the classic game’s strategy.
There are no draws here -- a “Shootout Round” determines the winner every time a draw occurs.
The prize rich games are just a bit faster (but not too fast) for everyone, from beginner to experienced player, on our new online and mobile platform.[bg_collapse expand_text="READ MORE" collapse_text="CLOSE" icon="arrow" ]
New players ( and parents ): New Millennium is a fun and an easier introduction to the brain-boosting, IQ-fueling game that teaches problem-solving and hones memory and spatial skills. Need lessons? We do that.
Gamers of all ages: Online chess doesn’t have to look like old-time Tetris. Our platform plays like what it is, one designed for today. And it has both the game schedule and competition, plus plenty of prizes, and ratings to keep everyone coming back for more.[/bg_collapse]
Our founders, Susan Polgar and Michael Propper are polar opposites who adore each other’s style. Together they created New Millennium Chess. Michael, having a background in sports, education, and leadership, wants to do for Chesswhat occurred for Soccer in the USA in the ’80s. Introducing a slightly faster, more engaging, mainstream style of play, it’s equally appealing to the youngest players, “gamers,” and even the highest-level players.
Susan is committed to the classic game of Chess and its growth. She knows that by easing entry to play and introducing younger, new players to a more
“sporting environment” like New Millennium Chess, through this enormous pool of play, will identify special talent, and the game she has been so devoted to and loves so deeply will grow like never before.
Susan’s remarkable life, full of achievements, is a true “Queen’s Gambit” story.
