A present for me for Christmas...
on 14 November 2014
As I live alone, I no longer get the chance to play board games so I originally went looking for a chess challenger. I'd played on a chess challenger before, but the damn thing used to cheat and it always won even at idiot level so I was wary about buying another. Plus I like playing Chess but am not terribly good at it as I have Dyscalculia (the numbers version of Dyslexia) and have a problem thinking through numbers and moves in my head. Straight away I found this, Solitaire, which seemed to be exactly what i was looking for and I have not been disappointed. This is such a well thought out game and works for any level of player from beginner to adept. It comes in a nice & equally thought out plastic box, with the pieces in their own little box underneath the actual board, along with a plentiful number of double sided cards to work through. It is also the sort of game you could play over and over again because you won't remember any of your conclusions (unless you've got a photographic memory that is.) Another plus is that of wanting to learn chess but feeling intimidated by the complexity of moves required by each piece. Therefore this a great way of practicing for playing Chess with a partner. It can also be played by a bright ten year old or even perhaps a little younger. So from beginner to adept this game embraces the whole range.I started playing with it straightaway and I am really having fun with it. it certainly gives the brain a good work out. I can't imagine why anyone would be disappointed with this game.
