Summary: My son is ten and has learned some of the basics of Chess. He has enjoyed this option of learning by video game. He seems to be thinking of the strategy behind the game of Chess even when he is not playing on his DS.
Summary: I am glad I spent the cash. I love the tutorials and ease of learning them plus the quiz on the rules right away makes it a lot better on someone who is learning to play at the age of 28! Okay, maybe this game is a little young, but it is not a difficult to absorb learning session. Learn Chess actually does focus my mind better than trying to learn it online like I have been off and since I was 15. I wish they would come out with Learn Go.
Summary: I bought this for my son who is 7.5. He is having a great time with it. I gave it 4 stars instead of five because it as a bit frustrating for him at first. After I went over it a couple of times and showed him what the game wanted from him, he picked it right up. He had a very rudimentary understanding of chess before the game. He plays a computer version, but did not truly understand how each piece moved. This game has walked him through the steps piece by piece.
