The kNights Of the Square Table
or NOST is an organization of gamers that has
been in existence for over 37 years. Chess is the primary game played, but
many other games are also played. There is a specific section for Chess
Variants and Non-Chess Games. In NOST-ALGIA, the official publication of NOST,
one usually finds much information and competitions of chess variants and
various non chess games. In general, games played in NOST are postal, but with
a rapidly growing email participation. There is an annual convention
(NOSTvention) where members meet in person to play chess and variants.
Chess, variants, and nonchess games are also played by email in NOST. There
are many competitions in which one can participate. NOST is based in the
United States, and most of its members are from the US, but NOST also has an
increasing number of members from several other countries. More
information on NOST can be
found on the NOST website.
