The game of chess has seen massive growth in popularity since the beginning of the pandemic.
A group of Lincoln players have found a unique over-the-board experience.
Cigarz Lounge near 8th and Q street in Lincoln hosts a Monday night chess league every week.
Owner of Cigarz Lounge Stacy Williams and league judge Steve Kuzma began the league in September 2020.
Participants play for weekly prizes and a spot atop the bar’s leaderboard.
