Ron also started teaching Harry wizard chess.  This was exactly like Muggle chess except that the figures were alive, which made it a lot like directing troops in battle.  Ron's set was very old and battered.  Like everything else he owned, it had once belonged to someone else in his family--in this case, his grandfather.  However, old chessmen weren't a drawback at all.  Ron knew them so well he never had trouble getting them to do what he wanted.

"When it comes to wizarding sports and games (Quidditch, Quodpot, Creaothceann – officially banned but still played illegally – broom-racing, Gobstones and so forth) wizards are naturally fiercely partisan and support their own country, but it is considered infra dig for wizards to support any rugby team other than Scotland."
