A wonderful way to introduce the game of chess to the novice in your life. The generously sized chessmen and board make learning a snap. You're never too young (or old) to learn how to play the beloved game of chess. This is a standard plastic Staunton-style chess set-with one big difference. Each piece is marked with its name, its value, and the directions in which it can Legally move when moving or taking. The large (2-inch), hollow pieces are lightweight and feel pretty flimsy, but in fact they're sturdy and their extra-wide bases give them the stability that small, clumsy fingers need. A folding board and instructions are included with the set.
