This Chess Teacher is a learning set for the beginner. Have you always wanted to learn how to play chess?
In an age that seems convinced high tech is always better, it’s nice to see such an intelligently low-tech approach to teaching the world’s greatest board game. This is simply a standard plastic Staunton-style chess set–with one big difference. Each piece is marked with its name, its value, and the directions in which it can legally move when moving or taking.
The large (2-inch), hollow pieces are lightweight and feel pretty flimsy, but in fact they’re sturdy and their extra-wide bases give them the stability that small, clumsy fingers need. A folding board and instructions are included with the set. The instructions, unfortunately, are weak; they’re best used as an aid to memory by someone who has already had the game explained.
