Chess is an awesome game for a child to learn how to play. Not only is chess a game that is a ton of fun. Chess is also more of a thinking person’s kind of game so it is something that is going to really encourage them to think a few moves ahead and that is pretty cool. At under 20 bucks, this really does make for a nice and thoughtful gift. Not to mention they are going to have a lot of fun with it.
What makes this the perfect chess set for a child is that it actually teaches them how to play. It comes with a book that explains the basics and teaches them the rules. But the game board also gives information for what each piece can do, where it can go and so on. Eventually, your child will be a chess wiz!
