Synopsis

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. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities - this isn't just a textbook about the rules of the game! 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 checkmate every beginner needs to know - and when you're really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colourful artworks so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. 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, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.
