International Chess Games 2028

by Sakhalinsk wikipedia


Welcome to the 2nd International Chess Games! This is a chance for your nation's top chess players to compete in the greatest chess tournament in the world!

We welcome people of all ages and skill levels, from new players wishing to learn from the best, to the best themselves wishing to compete. However, for the sake of simplicity, if you wish to send a telegram stating who will attend, only list the top 5 players. Make sure to prepare all delegates with money and luggage good for two weeks, as well as any transportation tickets needed.

The games will be held in Dawning Springs, the capital of Antarritah.

A total of over a hundred people will be attending the Games, but for brevity we will only be listing here the top 5 players from each nation.
