Checkmate! This intelligent and interactive board book is the best introduction to the greatest strategy game of all time, chess. A pop out chessboard and full set of pieces is included in this brilliant companion so players can take the game with them and practice en route or stuck inside on a rainy day. The introduction outlines the simple details. The board is composed of 64 black and white squares with each player beginning with 16 pieces and the instructions outline how to trap the king and capture pieces - both important strategies in winning the game. The strict rules for each chess piece's move are explained clearly, such as how pawns jump forward and are captured diagonally while king pieces can move in any direction but only one square at a time and queen pieces travel as far as she likes in one turn, in a straight line in any direction. Learn that if an opponent cannot move without revealing a more powerful piece, you have them pinned down and discover the best way to carry out a fork move, threatening two pieces at the same time. The pop out chess pieces are quick and easy to assemble, simply pop the two parts out and slot them together via the matching letters. Amusing illustrations make this guide even more fun, with a knight battling a castle and pawn, a queen teaching in front of a chess board and a bishop bopping another pawn on the head with a sceptre, chuckle at a battleline of white royal chess pieces and smile at the black and white pawns grumpily standing side by side. Chess is made easy and fun in an engaging book that makes a complicated challenge simple for young and old players alike. Board book, 8.1" x 11.6", pop out pieces, colourful illustrations, 8pp.
