DescriptionWe play chess in either single or double elimination format.
BasicsProbably 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.
Why is this Fun?Chess is a nice strategic challenge.
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 chess.
Equipment List:Chess Sets
Printed Brackets
Tool for seeding players.
