YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – If you like chess, there’s a new way to play in Youngstown in a big way.

Warriors Inc. will soon open the Chess House at 3431 Market Street.

It’s a place where the community can come together for poetry readings and fellowship. They can also play chess on a big game board. 

The new space is the dream of a man who loves poetry and the city. 

“What we wanted to do was just open up something different for the community where people can come in and just play chess,” said Joe McGeorge, executive director of Warriors, Inc. 

A grand opening is set for May 4.
