Everything a child needs to play chess is right in this spiral bound book--even a board (packed in a reusable vinyl pouch) and all the pieces fit into a drawer that slides out of the attractively die-cut spine! And of course, there's a down-to-basics guide that eases beginners right into the game. From setting up the board to positioning the pieces, from smart sacrifices to killer traps, it proceeds in logical, simple steps. Every page focuses in on one particular rule, piece, or tactic--capturing, castling, queening, checkmate--and explains it in detail, complete with illustrations and special sidebar notations. It's the first move to becoming a master!
