Teaching Chess Pieces

Chess Teacher

I’ve just got back from my much needed annual vacation, so thanks to Liam, Randal and Alexia (just :)) for keeping the cool gadget posts flowing in my absence. Whilst on vacation I taught my 9 year old daughter how to play chess, she picked it up really quick but it would of been so much easier with these learning chess pieces.

The Chess Teacher aims at helping novice players by showing you what moves are allowed (albeit in a very none techie way):

At last chess pieces with the rules for how they move printed right on them! Now everyone can play. You get a complete set of plastic chess pieces with printed on rules for moving, chess board, and an instruction booklet, which you won’t need because the pieces are so clearly marked!
