The days are getting shorter and the air is getting colder: winter is coming. This means it´s almost time for the traditional Chess Game Design Competition award ceremony again! This year there are nine participants. You can vote for their designs until the end of this year during your visit to the Chessmen Museum.

On Wednesday, 1 January 2020 all votes will be counted and museum director Ridder Dijkshoorn will award the prizes to the participants of the Chess Game Design Competition. Once again, creative individuals of all ages have participated in the competition. Do come to the Chessmen Museum on New Year’s Day and let yourself be surprised by their designs!

The Chessmen Museum opens at 14.00 on 1 January for the award ceremony and admission is free that day. As is tradition, the festivities will be graced with the musical notes of the Balcony Players, and there will be tasty appetizers and drinks. See you on 1 January!
