QuickChess promises to get kids playing chess in minutes. Beginners start on the junior side of the board, moving one square at a time. Pieces are introduced as play levels increase. Skills develop as players move to higher levels. QuickChess has been given an impressive array of awards from Dr. Toy, the Parent's Choice Foundation, Games Magazine, the National Parenting Center, and the Canadian Toy Testing Council. The game includes a double-sided board (one side for the junior game, the other is the traditional 64-square version); 32 chess pieces; quick reference diagrams, and easy instructions for ten levels of play. Ages 6 and up.
