For the chess merit badge, he will cover how to move the chess pieces, how to write notation and how to use strategy. Before you come on Saturday, you can look at a brief history of chess online if you want. But he will discuss the history of chess at the beginning. We will also be playing some games and hopefully, have a tournament if we have time.
