Word for the Day: Scacchic

All kinds of scacchic thrills and chills here in San Diego right now, because the U.S. Chess Champion will be determined here this weekend. Oh, and scacchic? It means “of or pertaining to chess.” Pronounced “SKACK-ick,” it’s from the Italian word for “chess,” scacchi. May the player with the best scacchic skills win!
