Chess Merit Badge
Chess merit badge The requirements for the chess merit badge are available on scouting.org and HERE.

Scouts get to use EDGE to teach other scouts Chess skills. I especially like requirement #5c where the board is set up and the scout needs to demonstrate how to force checkmate.

There's not a lot of 'doing' in the requirements, just play three games or a tournament, but understanding strategy, rules, and terminology is prominent.

Great timing for the release, I think. How many of you are going to have winter Chess tournaments in your troops this year? :-)

Now, who moves first? Black or White?
