NEW CHESS DOCUMENTARY: Through the Mirror of Chess

Post by hburton2023 » Sun Mar 26, 2023 7:00 pm

Greetings Musketeer Chess people!

At the risk of sounding overtly self-promotional, I thought that I would let you know that our 4-part documentary series, Through the Mirror of Chess, has recently been released and is available on the Ideas Roadshow app and Vimeo on Demand (pricing is $9.99 for a one-week rental of the entire series or $19.99 for purchase; the 2-DVD set {$39.99) will be available as of May 2). I used Zied's wonderful Board Painter throughout, and I'm most grateful for all of his support. While the films are mostly oriented towards a detailed exploration of the history and cultural impact of international chess, there is also a section on the diversity of chess-like games in Part 1, featuring an extended segment with Rick Knowlton.

For more information about the films and how you can download our app, please visit:

Please don't hesitate to contact me through this forum or by email ( should you require any more information, but I'm guessing our website ( will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about me and the films.

Best wishes,

Howard Burton
