Introduce twenty-first-century kids to the centuries-old game of chess with this all-in-one "starter" kit! Begin at the beginning with the illustrated paperback The Kids' Book of Chess
, which gives youngsters a quick lesson on the history of the game before explaining the game pieces, how they move, and the basic rules, all in clear, kid-friendly language. Next, novice players can try out their newfound skills on the 12"x16" game board—printed with handy "reminders" about how each piece is allowed to move—and two "armies" of black and cream plastic pieces. Our Kids Chess Kit
is a wonderful introduction to "the oldest and greatest skill game ever invented"
…and just may launch a future Grandmaster! For ages 8 and up.
