Linn-Benton CC’s chess club will be giving a four-player chess set to one random attendee at the end of the spring term.
Travis Peterson, the student rep for the chess club, intends to hold a raffle in the commons cafeteria during every chess club meeting.
“The idea was that we were going to give away a regular one, but we thought ‘why give away a regular chess set when you can give away a four-player chess set, so you can play with your friends?’”
A four-player chess set is like a traditional one, but with an additional three rows of eight cells on all four sides of the chess set. Players can play free-for-all matches or have teams of two, and each side of the board has different color pieces.
During the chess club meetings, it is expected you play a game of chess before you enter in the raffle for the prize at the end of the spring term. A ticket with your name will be entered in a jar and drawn from at the end of the spring term.
The chess club meets Tuesdays and Thursdays in the commons cafeteria from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to
