Story Time Chess is a board game that teaches chess to young children using silly stories, vibrant illustrations, custom chess pieces, a unique chess board, and an engaging card game. The stories and supporting materials communicate the rules of chess to children ages 3 and up in a way that makes learning chess simple and fun. Best of all, no chess experience is required for parents or children to learn.
Story Time Chess includes:
Beautifully Designed Storybook
Stories are an incredibly powerful educational tool. Children have an astounding ability to retain stories down to the last detail. Telling a child an abstract rule may only confuse them because they have nothing to connect with. Instead of telling children what something is, Story Time Chess is perfect for showing the rules of chess – through stories.
Exercises For Each Piece
Each chess piece has its own story and exercises that explain how the piece moves in a fun, silly, memorable way
Matching pieces and board
The board has characters that match the pieces, making board setup easy!
Engaging Minigames That Reinforce Mechanics
We’ve developed over 30 minigames that teach children the rules of chess effectively, including a card game that encourages children to use every chess piece.
Custom Chess Pieces
With our custom chess pieces, the children are able to connect the stories to the pieces more easily. By visually seeing the characters and physically touching the pieces, children are able to learn chess without realizing it. Each piece is designed to hold the character from their story in order to communicate the rules of chess effectively–and have fun!
Double Sided Chessboard
Our double sided chess board and custom chess pieces are made from high quality, child friendly materials and are regulation size for tournament play. Players can either use the story themed side with all of our characters, or the standard chess side for regular chess.
