This is a good introduction to the game of Chess for my grandkids ages 7 and 8. They are learning a little bit of it in school so like to practice on us when they are here. Just wish it came in a box where it could all be kept together. Guess I can find one that will work.
My 5 year old grandson recently started playing chess on the computer,. I wanted a game to play with him when he visits. This board set is a good value, with good-sized plastic pieces. I wish the board was a little heavier. The book is excellent, with clear and concise explanation of pieces and moves. It's above his reading level, but easily understood when read to him.
