Teach Me with Games: Solitaire Chess

It's that time of year again! Time for Christmas gifts, and boy do I have a great one for you. Recently Timberdoodle Co. gave my family the opportunity to review Solitaire Chess.

I have to tell you, from the get-go it has been a hit. My oldest son has found a love for the traditional game of chess, so he was very excited to learn about this new game. After a quick overview of the instructions,ThinkFun Solitaire Chess was packed in our travel bag for our recent 14 hour car drive. The game conveniently includes all of the pieces in a handy self contained storage box making it perfect for travel.

My oldest love playing Solitaire Chess at our condo on vacation. I do want to point out the video game on the side (not being played)

As somone who hasn't played chess or know anything about chess I have to say, this is a nifty game. My youngest son has already memorized the chess pieces and is already diving in to play.

Solitaire Chess is a great way to sharpen your chess skills practicing only traditional chess moves. From the website;
This logic game, based on the rules of chess, will not only help you learn the game, but also greatly improve your ability to "think chess." Fast-paced Solitaire Chess includes 60 challenges from beginner to expert, ten chess pieces, and a storage bag. Ages eight to adult.
My husband has also been finding some time to play and says that once you move through the basic beginner stages of the game, it starts to pick up and provide quite a challenge. Learning happens all of the time strategy is great for the brain and teaches patience and thinkiing skills. It makes me smile to see all three of them huddled around the game board working on a strategy together.

Since there are four of us in the house, we each gave it a thumbs up or down. This game got a full four thumbs up from our family. Check out Timberdoodle Co. for ThinkFun Solitaire Chess, or more family and educational games. If you are a homeschooler be sure to also check out their free catalog
