About Us

At “Chess Castle” we are focused on delivering quality digital media chess content aimed at improving Club players level.
We have decided to start with the high level chess videos purposed to improve understanding of all aspects of the game (opening lines, middlegames or endgames).
Our digital download videos are on average 60 minutes duration (in our view an optimal time for a Club player level), but some subjects will be connected (and offered if desired) in a bundle.
The difference between us and other chess video producers is that our mission is to focus on quality (not quantity) and our video ideas we screen carefully, while authors being amongst the World best.
We also have (next to videos) other digital media developments in the pipeline- that will be announced in a due time.
