My 7 year old had no background with chess at all. I bought this app on Friday evening, and just handed the tablet to her. I figured she could ask for help if she needed it. By Sunday morning, she was challenging her dad and me to a game on our real board; she was so excited! A week of playing it in the car on the way to school, and one of her teachers told me she was teaching her friends to play on the library board. They got a kick out of listening to her describe how each piece moved, and the cost-benefit of sacrificing a piece, all in the language of a 2nd grader. Seriously an amazing app. This was such a great investment! Ty!
No reason to hesitate
If you want your child to learn how to play chess, buy this. We are about 3 hours in, and my 4-year old has already internalized the moves and captures of pawns, rooks, and the king (the pieces he’s been introduced to so far in the game) and various tactical ideas (like the rook being weak if it is blocked). An excellent game, with attention to detail. As good as all their other apps, which you should also check out.
5 year old loves it, and so do I
Incredibly fun way to learn the basics of chess. My 5 year old can’t get enough and I have enjoyed it as well. He asked today if there is a way to play each other in the app rather than on a real board (as stated in the app). So that’s my only suggestion, a two player mode option after the end of game would be a great way to practice the skills we’ve learned in the app.
