Chess Tournament

Submitted by:Traditional on or sooner
Held:2Times (XVI, XVII)
Skills Required:
Time Frame:
Work as:Individual
Equipment Needs:
Basics:Probably best to learn the chess rules elsewhere.
For our tournament maybe we'd have youth and adult brackets and randomly seed players who play a single game to choose a winner.
If we did double elimination we'd have a losers bracket and eventually the winner of that bracket would take on the undefeated winner. The loser's bracket would have to win twice to take the tournament.
Variations:There are a great many chess variants from board shapes to cards and additional rules. We could also play Khet which is an Egyptian-themed laser cherss.
Equipment List:Chess Sets
Printed Brackets
Tool for seeding players.
