The Chess Merit Badge!14963875927_b7253e92d9_o

Chess develops critical thinking skills, concentration skills, and decision-making skills — all of which can help you in other areas of your life.  Besides the rules of the game, some of the things we are learning about chess include:

  • History of the game
  • Sportsmanship and etiquette
  • Strategy for opening, middle and end game
  • Scorekeeping
  • How to teach someone else to play

We are currently playing a chess tournament to practice both our strategy and our scorekeeping.
