Happy May Term, everyone!
For the students in my chess class, here is an awesome illustrated guide to the basic rules of chess. This page shows you how each piece can move. I highly recommend that you bookmark this page and have it handy on your phone/iPad/portable computing device. You can use these notes in class!
If you’re interested in the complete rules of tournament chess, check out this page here.
Meanwhile, everyone – yes you! – should download a chess clock app for their phone/iPad, etc for the rest of the class. I am not going to link to anyone one app because I don’t want to endorse any one app or another. Just get a free one – there is no need to pay for that app!
And if anyone can bring another board or two to class tomorrow, that would be great!
