We have a new puzzle contest! We will post two puzzles here every day from Monday-Friday. Please either submit the puzzles using the form below each puzzle or hand your results in at chess club. If you cannot notate, feel free to print out the puzzles and draw arrows, but otherwise you must notate your answers to get credit! At the end of each chess session, trophies will be given to winners.
Puzzles will be scored as follows:
- 3 points for a correct answer; 1 point for just answering.
- 1 bonus point for student who hands in an answers within 14 days after puzzles are posted will receive a bonus point! Otherwise, Puzzles can be handed in at any time.
That means by just attempting to solve a puzzle you will receive two points, and if you answer a puzzle correctly you will get five points! Some of these puzzles may be challenging, but that is OK! Solving puzzles is one of the best ways to improve your chess.
