    My kid plays it. He used to play it with his dad on skype a lot.
    We play it sometimes together but I must admit, the game doesnt interest me the way it does him.

    So how many of you actually know how to play? Without needing the rules explained to you.
    How did you learn? Who taught you?
    Fess up time. No one will make fun of you. :munch:

    I'm watching this right now and it's really interesting.

    Might make you wanna learn or teach the kids in your life:

    I'm not good at it, but I know how the pieces move :c

    King can only move one space in any direction
    Rook can move forward or side to side
    Bishop can move diagonally
    Queen can move like bishop or rook
    Beth moves in an L formation 2 steps forward and one to the right, with variations.
    Pawn can move 2 space forward at first move, and then only one and can only kill one move diagonally.

    I think, :dadance:
