Briggs the Chess Master

Briggs has recently taken up a new hobby. He loves to play chess. We got him a game called "No Stress Chess" that teaches the basics and how to move the pieces. He got hooked. Then his Uncle, the real chess master, got him a great computer software program that is a great learning tool for kids - "Learn to Play Chess with Chester and Fritz" . Needless to say, we can't get him off of the computer. He has learned alot. Mom has even been known to sit down and play a little "opposition"

Thanks, Mark and Lisa for the game. He absolutely loves it.

Yes, I was very impressed with him tutoring Kurt this weekend! Fun kid!

Awesome! So glad he likes it. Finally someone in the family will be able willing to play Chess with me...although, at this rate, I give him till 10 years old till he's out of my league.

Give Briggs anything on the computer and he can learn it. Funny how each of our learning styles are different.

So glad to hear Briggs has taken to Chess! Chess is not easy to learn and I give him credit for sticking to it. I look forward to some lively games between him and Uncle Marky.
