Could you be a Checkmate?
This man who suffered a brain injury some years ago is looking for a volunteer to play chess with him at home. He plays slowly so patience is required. He also likes playing scrabble.
He has been waiting for a suitable volunteer for quite a while. Are you the person he would like to play chess with?
