I know there has not been and is not now a Chess MB, but I have heard
rumors that one was being proposed. I want the proposed requirements!
I think my troop would enjoy testing this proposed MB.
I brought my chess board to summer camp this year and one of the boys
asked to play. Within 5 minutes, three more boys were lined up to play
and I dug out the second set. Most hours of the day for the whole week
there was a chess match in progress in our camp. In the evenings, both
boards were going with 4 or more boys waiting to in on the next game!
Every boy we had at summer camp either knew how to play or learned the
game that week.
