Chess 101: Introduction to playing chess

Have you ever dreamed of playing chess but don't know how? Jace Jones, chess instructor is going to provide 4 introductory classes to NEREG patients. The classes will be held on-line so you can attend from the comfort of your home. You will just need a computer.

Class 1: you and Jace will go over what each of the pieces are, how they move and how they capture.

Class 2: will review what was learned in class 1 and then go over "castling," the value of the pieces and show an example game as a demonstration of how the pieces move

Class 3 will go over opening principles (controlling the center of the board, developing pieces, moving pieces to good squares) and will start the discussion on simple checkmates

Class 4 will go over more examples of checkmates as well as simple tactics

Cost: $20 for all four lessons

To register, please send in a note stating that you wish to participate and include a check for $20 made out to Epilepsy Free.
