…Chess is no longer just a game for people with long term memory?

Chess Set

If you’ve always wanted to learn chess but can never remember what to do with your rook or even what a rook is, this set is for you. Available from Miles Kimball, these pieces have their name and potential moves printed on the back of the base. The set comes with the plastic chess pieces, board, and instruction booklet (which I thought was the point of the pieces themselves but maybe the booklet gives strategy or something). If you can’t memorize how each piece moves, the logic behind a game like this may elude you, but if you just want to teach a young one the game so you can subsequently trash talk your way through his first defeat, this set is for you.
