THE FUN OF PLUNDERCHESS® IN AN EXCITING GROUP SETTING
Tournaments and Fund Raising Tournaments
If your state's scholastic chess organization or local chess club is interested in sponsoring a "PlunderChess® Tournament" or "PlunderChess® Fund Raising Tournament", we would like to support you and offer assistance. Let's start the planning process.
"My name is John McGraw. I have been the chess coach for Jasper City Schools in Alabama for the past ten years. I introduced PlunderChess about 6 years ago to my students, and we have had annual PlunderChess tournaments ever since! I am fascinated at how my elementary students have taken to it, especially the girls. Perhaps it's the bright colors of the vests, but I had four new girls join our chess team last year! I attribute the growth of my chess program in large part to PlunderChess. The game actually makes students think deeper than classical chess! As a teacher, one of my primary goals is to get my students to improve their critical thinking skills and PlunderChess does just that! I believe PlunderChess is a great way to inspire the next generation in the art of chess."
