About this course:

Chess is one of the most popular strategy games in the world. This class works as a workshop and is best suited for anyone who knows the very basics (rules and moves). A quick refresher is given if necessary, but some very basic knowledge of the rules certainly helps. From there, we expand on various fun chess topics that include but are not limited to, strategies, openings, endgames, puzzles, exercises, and many others. We also dedicate at least an hour every week to gameplay where you are paired with people of similar skill. You are more than welcome to retake the class multiple times.
