Complete these three requirements:

  1. Identify the chess pieces and set up a chess board for play.
  2. Demonstrate the moves of each chess piece to your den leader or adult partner.
  3. Play a game of chess.

Requirements for the Chess Pin


Earn the Chess belt loop, and complete five of the following requirements:
  1. Demonstrate basic opening principles (development of pieces, control center, castle, don't bring queen out too early, don't move same piece twice).
  2. Visit a chess tournament and tell your den about it.
  3. Participate in a pack, school, or community chess tournament.
  4. Solve a pre-specified chess problem (e.g., 'White to move and mate in three') given to you by your adult partner.
  5. Play five games of chess.
  6. Play 10 chess games via computer or on the Internet.
