Product Description

Product Description

A sequential logic puzzle that uses the rules of chess in simplified form to create a diabolical brainteaser challenge. Choose a challenge mat and place it on the game tray or in the storage slot. Place chess pieces on the challenge mat as indicated. Then capture the pieces one by one. When only one piece remains on the board, you win. Play each challenge through, then come back and play it again and again. You must capture a piece with every move, so this Thinkfun logic puzzle game is fast paced and always exciting.

While this is not standard chess, playing Solitaire chess will teach you the basic rules of how to play chess, and deepen your strategic understanding of chess. The game contains 60 challenge cards ranging from beginner to expert with solution descriptions referring to the chess board positions. This game makes an ideal travel game as it comes complete with a built in storage drawer for the challenge cards and Chess pieces. Solitaire Chess can be enjoyed by single players and suitable for 8 ages years and up.

Awards: Winner of the Creative Child Magazine Preferred Choice Award.

Box Contains

  • 1 x chess board
  • 60 x challenges

    I bought this before going on a family holiday to the outer Hebrides, where the weather meant that most of our evenings were spent indoors - we had a bunch of teenagers in the group who, it turned out, became totally absorbed with it night after night. The concept is so simple that anyone with an inkling of how to play chess can pick it up in moments, and being a 'cut down' version of the game, the solutions can take only a few moments to solve (or not, as they get harder...!) which means that it can be really engaging - I found that members of the group who were not frequent chess players did surprisingly well, coming up with solutions when the rest of us were scratching our heads, which really gave an inclusive feel to the whole thing. Although some of the solution cards did get a little battered by the end of the holiday (might have been better if they had been printed on plastic card), the build quality overall is adequate and quite clever in the way that all the pieces and the cards fit into the box. Overall I rate this game very highly and reckon its inventors should get a medal for coming up with something so brilliantly simple - go buy it!

    Great game for children who might enjoy learning to play chess. Sturdy board/box, nice chunky pieces. Educational too in problem solving, spatial awareness, consequential thinking, etc. Bought one for a nine year old boy, then bought one for myself!

    Great game, but 2010 set is not as compact as the 2013 version (item number 83400). The 2010 version has a cumbersome plastic board with challenge cards to slot in. The 2013 version has a neat little spiral bound book.

    Very impressed with the great design and how well made set is. Nephew loves chess, and though knew most of the challenges, he loved playing each one.

    If you have a child who likes chess, this is the present for him/her! It is a real challenge to kids and there are so many puzzles that the child will be playing others well before he or she runs out of puzzles

    My Son loved this. A budding chess genius, aged 8, he was able to work through the different problem levels to increase his skill at chess. Although this is used for children in our house, it would be useful for anyone learning chess who wishes to improve their game on their own.

    Extremely well made and a good size make this exceptional value for money. Some have commented that it is not as portable as conventional travel sets, which it isn't. But worth the effort and perfect with the children when sitting around the table in a hotel bar or in the tent, if not for in the car. I think it would be great to help beginners learn the moves and to think about planning moves ahead, something I never did and remained at best a very average player. The increase in the level of difficulty is overcome, at least in my case so far having just reached the start of the advanced series, by identifying the single piece that will become isolated and concentrating on what can take it at and so determining the opening move, and the rest falling in to place. I am not sure that particular skill is applicable in a proper game of chess, or how challenging or entertaining the expert challenges would be to a good chess player. For me, as a long lapsed player of notable mediocrity, it is fun and highly recommended.

    A very good way to start to learn chess, I surprised myself. The instructions are very clear no need to read through pages of notes before you can get started. Excellent
