Gwyddbwyll is wood sense.

I've been wanting to start a chess blog called "Wood Sense" and, now that I have moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver Island, what could be a more appropriate title for a chess blog in this very wooded region of the country? Aren't the best chess pieces still made of wood?

Gwyddbwyll was the ancient Celtic chess-like game, mostly lost in time now, which translates as "wood sense". You can read a previous article about gwyddbwyll over at my Manitoba chess blog called Exclam! online .
