My son loves to play chess and so do several of my young friends so I was very intrigued by the opportunity to review Fun Family Chess from Brain Blox!
As soon as the family chess set arrived, I bought it to our homeschool co-op. There are many chess fans in our co-op so I wanted them to try it out.
Peter enjoyed playing the game and said that it was fun to play with the dice because it made the game more random and he was able to get his friend Daniel, who hates chess, to play. He also liked that you can play regular chess, too!
Samuel thought it was really fun and like the options. He thought it was a great way to introduce non-chess players to the game.
Gracie loved all the pretty colors in the booklet and on the dice. She liked the easier version and said it made her want to keep playing.
Daniel was surprised that he enjoyed it so much.
Fun Family Chess contains a wooden chess board and 32 wooden chess pieces. In addition, there was a full color chess directions booklets, a pouch to hold chess pieces, two full color reference cards, and a chess cube.
I love that everything is color-coded so that learning chess is made more simple.

Chess has been around for ages, but in the past decades it's become a game for intellectuals. The truth is that anyone can learn to play chess. It's a great family game!
Chess improves concentration, memory, strategic thinking, planning, foresight, and problem solving. I want to nurture my children's brain processing power! Chess is a great way to help my child grow intellectually.
So, how do you take away the intimidation factor of chess?
