Wu Tang Clan founder RZA and Chesspark.com  introduced wuchess.com  earlier this week, an online community where chess players can come together and compete in live games with other players.
While an official launch is expected to take place in coming weeks, those interested in joining the community can pre-register now and join later for an unspecified yearly fee. A portion of the revenue will be donated to charity, including the Hip-Hop Chess Federation, which RZA is a member of.
"Wuchess.com  gives you a chance to have fun and learn as you go," RZA told Billboard.biz.
In addition to playing online, members will get exclusive invitations to a bi-annual event to be held in an as-yet-unannounced location later this year, where players can play and win prizes.
