My First Chess Book
By

Rating
Learn how to play chess - the world's most popular board game! Chess is easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica E Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it - and start winning. This isn't a boring textbook about the rules of the game; you can improve your skills through 35 fun activities. Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar's Mate - the four-move mate every beginner needs to know - and when you're really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets on the board. All the activities have clear, colourful artworks so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chess board. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you've ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, check out the Starting Out section for a reminder.
