The Chandra Alexis Chess Club has been active in Boise, Idaho, since 2007.

The Chandra Alexis Chess Club makes every effort to avoid conflict with other affiliates in the state by contacting the United States Chess Federation’s Clearinghouse for Idaho and the Idaho Chess Association prior to submitting our tournaments.

In September 2018 our club began monthly tournaments and offered 21 U.S. Chess Federation rated events through February of 2020. Beginning on May 29, 2021, we moved to weekly U.S. Chess Federation rated tournaments. On January 1, 2022, more than 25 of these tournaments were internationally rated. Currently our offerings stand at 90 tournaments and counting.

Each Monday, we offer U.S. Chess and FIDE rated games to active members of the United States Chess Federation. Entry is free, we request $10 to assist with the $70 tournament rating fees. All games are submitted after the third Monday of the month allowing the World Chess Federation time to rate the games on the first of each month.

Come play with the Boise Chess Club at All About Games, 7079 Overland, Boise, Idaho, which meets Mondays beginning at 5 p.m. Drop in for friendly pickup games!

We also meet at 4 p.m. Saturdays with the Chess Nuts Club Club behind the church at

The Chandra Alexis Chess Club knows how to give Boise players an inexpensive World Class chess experience, at a classical time control, without high entry fees and travel expenses, while never having to leave home.
Players join the United States Chess Federation out of our need to find stronger competition and a desire to improve our game.  Were we happy to play the fellow next door for Mountain Dew and Firehouse Sub Cheddar Beef Brisket sandwiches, we would have never joined the United States Chess Federation. Come and join us and you will improve your game!!
