Castles and Kings: Chess for Beginners   

Did chess originate in India or China? The experts can’t agree, but they do agree that it was first played about 1,500 years ago and spread from India thru Persia into Europe. Today, chess is played at least once a year by 12% of Britons, 15% of Americans, 23% of Germans, 43% of Russians, and 70% of the people in India! This chess class for beginners will introduce the basic moves and strategy of the pieces, their initial positioning on the board, openings and end games, and the advantages and limits of each piece. The objective of the class is to have fun while learning to play this ancient game. **Registrants should expect to purchase for their use in class and at home an inexpensive chess set - even travel size will work.
