Last week, Netflix
dropped arguably the best series of the year – The Queen’s Gambit! In the first
look, the show looks like it came right out of Gossip Girl from the 60s era. Of
course, it was much clever and twisted than an ordinary high-school drama of
the upper-east side!
The show is led by the
drop-dead gorgeous and thunderous talent – Anya-Taylor Joy. She will be seen as
a child prodigy adorned in 60s wardrobe. You must be wondering what could the

massive fan following in a matter of few days and has put Anya-Taylor Joy in

understand this show. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you’ve played this game
before or not, you’ll still find yourself engrossed and inspired.
If you’re looking for
something new to watch, make sure that give this show a go! The seven-episode
series came on Netflix on the 23rd of October and became a fan
favorite for two reasons – for the storyline and memes!
We’ve managed to
collect some of the best memes or Queen Gambit memes by fans on social media based on Queen’s Gambit characters from the Queen’s Gambit episodes! Check them out!
