No Stress Chess

Fredrik and Livia with their Daddy
 I don't know about you, but I think I was at least six before my Dad taught me how to play chess.  Just kidding.  I was seven.

My nephew Daniel, however, decided to teach his five-year-old Fred how to play, using a new method called "No Stress Chess".  No stress chess combines the traditional board game and pieces with a deck of action cards that explain how each piece moves.

It also provides a couple of variations on the play to help newbies learn the ropes.  It looks like even little Livia is getting in on the action.

I was going to say, "finally, some chess players I could beat!"  And then I thought about it for a moment.  Maybe not.

I suppose we'll have to see about that.
