Chess for Kids (Coming Spring 2017)
Chess is a challenging game (even for us adults, who might be occasionally frustrated by the mentally rewarding game of skill).
Chess is often called the “royal game,” and it is a lot of fun – not to mention a great way to develop certain cognitive skills. Chess is widely thought to be one of the best exercises for the mind, and the skills your child learns playing them game are sure to carry over into other areas of life.
Never played chess? Don’t know what it’s all about?
Here’s a quick look at the rules of the game.
Chess allows two players to play at a time. The game board used in chess is a checkerboard sporting sixty-four squares. Each of the two players starts with sixteen pieces. In chess, there are six types of pieces, as follows:
- A king
- A queen
- A pair of knights
- A pair of rooks
- A pair of bishops
Each respective type of piece has a limited number of possible “moves” a player can make with, upping the challenge in the game, and sending many players into focused, intense – and oh so fun – head-to-head matches. The idea is to capture the opposing player’s queen in an inescapable move called a checkmate. If you’ve played chess at all, you know that is harder, in reality than it sounds.
Chess is always sure to get the old brain working. What better time to do just that than when the player is young? You never know, your child may just be playing against you and winning in no time, after a few chess classes at Evolution Enrichment Center! Let us help your child unlock his or her inner chess master!
