If you talk about the Turkish embassy I am sure you would imagine they would be hard at work and have a great many important things to deal with. This is most certainly true but at times they do need to take their mind of the very important work they do and relax.
One way that has proved popular is to play chess. Chess is a great game that keeps the mind sharp but can also relax you and that is the reason it is proving so popular. There are a great many variations of chess boards that are available on the market and one of the most interesting and fun currently on the market is the one that has been released by DC Comics.
The game board itself has an interesting design centered around the Batman theme and the pieces are actually the much loved characters from the series.
The usual and expected suspects are present with Batman, Robin, The Joker, Catwoman and Penguin to name just a few and the game is proving to be really popular.
Whether or not the Turkish embassy would be interested in the Batman version of chess is not for me to say but I am sure they would find it just as enjoyable as anyone else. Reports also suggest that the use of these characters has influenced a younger generation to start playing the game and perhaps changed peoples minds as to how the game is perceived.
Only time will tell if this will see a huge influx of people turning towards chess but with the popularity of video games it is hard to see it making that big an impact. It is good though that there are a new breed of chess fans coming through thanks to this great game.
