Chess Preschool

Rose has expressed interest in playing chess for a good while. I was hoping we could learn the potty thing first, but ok. We start out learning how to place the pawns and the king on the board. Then we learn how the pawns advance on the board. When Rose gets a queen, our little game is over. Someday when she gets all the moves down, we will have to take her to the chess club. There aren't that many girls who play chess, but I figure that Rose is used to doing everything with lots of boys around and she'll be fine.

  2. Thanks, Dad! She had a great time. We're learning how the pawn moves sideways to capture. She said, "I take ee you pawn!" many times before getting her queen. :)

  3. My grand daughter wanted to learn to play chess when she was 4, so her uncle James, my younger son, taught her. In 3 games! first game she learnt the moves and lost, second game she was more careful and played with much thought, third game she beat him!! Now she's quite good, but only plays rarely, just for fun.
