Location: Roper Elementary
Fee: $11 Materials
New and aspiring players will enjoy a wide array of fun chess activities, beginning with a simultaneous chess demonstration match. Learn the art of fast attacks while developing your own rock-solid defensive strategy. Solve puzzles, review the greatest game (and single-greatest move) ever played, then romp through history to meet the best chess champions ever. You will also play in a four-round, Swiss-System chess match where everyone takes home a commemorative, tournament-style chess set. The final class ends with a blindfold chess demonstration, which you’ll just have to see to believe.
