Challenging DS game -- best if adults can help occasionally

Michael Goeller "urusovguy", Amazon
9 April 2011
  • Summary: I picked up this game for my 8-year-old son. I think it is excellent and he really enjoys it, but he has definitely struggled with some of the problems and scenarios, so I think he might get frustrated if he did not have adults around who can answer his questions. Fortunately, my wife plays fairly well and I am a chess expert (2000+ USCF), so we can handle any questions that arise and help him overcome obstacles.

Great way to hone your chess skills

M, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: We got this for our 10 (now 11) year old. He already knew the basics of chess when he got it, but over time this game has become like his own little secret weapon. It's taught him moves other people don't seem to know and he can beat just about everyone he plays now, including adults. I agree this game can be frustrating (chess is not an easy game in and of itself) and I don't know that most young kids would enjoy it. Evidently it can be frustrating for adults too.

Makes Learning Chess a Little Easier

Margaret Agresti "mystery lover", Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: I highly recommend this game for anyone who wants to learn chess -- or has played a few times in the past, but really didn't know more than the basic rules. I agree with everything Samuels "Melissa" said in her review, she completely summed up the game and the cute backstory. The game quickly becomes challenging and there's the rub -- the marketing ploy of advertising this game as being for children 6 and over is a little misleading.

EXCELLENT TUTORIAL THIS FAR

Stevens "Melissa", Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: I have completed 40% of the tutorial and have learned, practiced and enjoyed it all through. The player enters the game through the Palace door and from there goes to different tutorials and mini-games that teach the basics of Chess and some good tactics. The beginning is a breeze, later it gets challenging. The mini-games get harder as you advance. They are real Chess game situations where some of the pieces have been removed.
