Chess Variants w/ GECo

On the 3rd of December, between 13:00 and 22:00, come join the GECo (Gaming and Entertainment Community at ETH) on their Board Game Days for a lot of board games fun!

In addition to the (huge) collection of games that GECo proposes, SKETHZ will introduce a few chess variants (chess960, tandem chess, tempête sur l’échiquier, condi-chess,…) to make people discover chess from a new perspective. So if you want to experience chess in a new way and enjoy other boardgames, this is the perfect opportunity to do it!

You can join and leave whenever you want, no registration needed and it’s only 5.-

If you want to participate at one of our events you have to comply to the Coronavirus measures of ETH Zurich. That means you need to have a valid COVID certificate and need to wear a mask at all times.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Our first OTB meetup

After long months of online chess, we finally got the opportunity to play over the board and meet in person.

About 16 players showed up to play this mini tournament.

On Tuesday 28.09.2021 we held a small chess tournament at ETH. The 16 players that showed up where of very different levels (from beginner to FM) but all found players to their level and enjoyed the 7-round blitz tournament (5+3, swiss system). Congratulations to Noah for winning without losing a single game and only drawing once 😵 !

Thanks to everybody that tuned in, especially to Philipp who booked a room for us despite the spontaneity of the event. We’re looking forward to organising further similar (free) events during this semester.

Final ranking. The top 3 players received a small prize.
