a notorious high school street gang/secret society of Dublin
, Ohio renowned for its members’ chess-playing skills; abbreviated as the GK
The GK had humble beginnings as it was originally a simple middle school chess club. The story of how it thrived and prospered is an epic tale too long to be documented here.
When its members entered the Dublin high schools and planted its agents far and wide, a vast network grew out of their great ambitions. Later, it eventually evolved into an alliance of nerds, geeks, bandies, and outcasts of every possible kind.
The GK now holds much influence at the Dublin schools despite being an underground secret society. The group is especially notorious for its rigging of student elections. The organization’s top members sat together at a special table each day during lunch until the Great Schism of 2006. On designated days, the members of this group wear a distinctive, black Checkmate! shirt that strikes fear into the hearts their enemies.
