Hi. This is Leo. I am going to review the No Stress Chess game for you today. I’m going to start doing more game reviews because we love to play games and we just got a bunch for Christmas. I got a No Stress Chess set from my Grandpa for Christmas and I played it this morning with my mom. No Stress Chess is for people to learn how to play chess. I already know how to play chess so I used the game to try to teach my mom.
Lear to Play Chess with No Stress Chess (A Kid Review)
No Stress Chess teaches people to play chess. It tells you where to put the playing pieces on the board.
Then you take turns lifting up cards and the cards tell you which playing piece you have to move. The card tells you all the rules so you don’t need to remember all of them.
The game was fun because I could teach mom how to play chess. She hasn’t been able to play with me because no one ever taught her how to play. We were able to play together and it was a lot of fun.
There are a lot of negatives to this game if you already know how to play chess. You can’t use strategy because you have to pick the card. So, you can only use a little bit of strategy. Also, you sometimes forget to pick up the card and you make a move and give away a little bit of your strategy. And your mom might beat you. My mom won and she doesn’t even really know how to play.
I would recommend No Stress Chess to people who don’t know how to play chess, or to people who want to teach friends to play chess.
Hope you like my first game recommendation. We are going to do A LOT more because we play a lot of games.
