How about a 1,500-year-old game played by kings and commoners, young and old, and boys and girls, that builds memory, concentration, and reasoning skills while you play?  Open to students with an interest in chess: students who have played once or twice, or students who don’t know the first thing about the game! A Beginner level and a Beginner/Intermediate level are offered, to accommodate varying levels of experience.
