Adults engage in games whose comforting rules set up an alternate world from the terrifying randomness of everyday life. If the rulelessness of the everyday gets you down, you can play chess. There, a kind of certainty about winning or losing (with relatively low stakes) is relaxing. That certainty frees you to return to the world of earnest, where things are more serious and less certain.
