International Master (IM) in chess since 2007, with one Grandmaster (GM) norm from 2008. In recent years, I have done more writing and coaching than competitive tournament chess. My 7th book, and 4th for Quality Chess, was published in July 2019 (Opening Simulator: King’s Indian Defence, co-written with Danish IM Andreas Hagen).
Since 2014, I develop educational and classic games on a freelance basis. My wife and I launched our own company in October 2018, SILU Game Products LLC. Equation Gamble is our first math game (published in 2019) and is available from this blog, our Amazon Store and on Etsy. More games are in the making – and in the meantime, Silas runs a 2-hour mini-camp on weekends with his games for kids who love math!
SILU Games also produces games for others. In 2021, the math game Factor was produced for Mindvang Games, and it will be available for sale in 2022. Apart from the entire production process, SILU Games also gives advice and feedback on game rules and other documents, and can thus guide inventors through the whole process of getting their first game on the market. Silas Esben Lund is fluent in Danish, English and German and also has experience with contracts and bringing products to market himself. Lu Mu has life-long experience from China as part of a family business that ran a printing house, so she knows the whole process and who to contact to get the game production on rails.
My formal education is a Bachelor’s degree in German Language and Culture from the University of Copenhagen. In 2001-2002, I lived in Berlin for one year as an exchange student.
Currently I live in New Jersey with my wife Lu Mu.
