Nov 14, 2015 Diane S - you have a great website with many beautiful pieces to choose from. I am looking forward to receiving the set we choose for our son for Christmas.
Lloyd D - I have ordered from Chesshouse many times and the experience has always been good - that's why I continue coming back.
Morris - Love Chess House! Great products and service. Very professional and personal. Highly recommended.
Richard - I found the ordering process extremely easy to use and the delivery
speed was amazing! They actually shipped within about an hour after I placed my order. After receiving the product, I had a service question and the response was also quick and helpful. I'll definitely be
purchasing again from ChessHouse!
Here are the chess sets and equipment most suitable for young chess players.
For kids aged 6 to 12 we recommend three basic and inexpensive chess books: 1) Chess Rules for Students, 2) Checkmate Ideas for Students, and 3) Chess Tactics for Students. The first one explains all the rules and chess notation, the second delves into checkmating patterns, and the third explains and challenges with important chess tactics.
For young kids ages 4 and up, the Fritz and Chesster software teaches chess in a fun way. For kids that are 7 or older and showing a serious interest in chess, the TASC Chess Tutorial (see video), lacks the snazz, but offers a lot more extensive value, with over 2600 interactive positions, introductions to each concept, testing by making the correct move in a position, and scoring. It is a smart investment.
