Timberdoodle's Review

Story Time Chess
Back in the '80s, when Timberdoodle was just getting launched, homeschoolers were known for their denim jumpers, wheat grinders, and love of chess. Fast forward nearly 40 years, and our fashion sense and household expectations have improved, but our passion for chess is just as strong. Has your family felt this homeschooling peer pressure? Or do you want some of the proven benefits that chess provides - strengthening academic performance, sharpening critical thinking, and boosting emotional intelligence - then Story Time Chess is a great place to start.

Story Time Chess is a board game that teaches chess to young children using silly stories, vibrant illustrations, custom chess pieces, and a unique chess board. The stories and supporting materials communicate the rules of chess to children ages 3 and up in a way that makes learning chess simple and fun. Best of all, no chess experience is required for parents or children to learn.

    Learning alongside my kids!

    This game is so fun! I’m learning just as much as my kids are.

    Fun game!

    The stories are fun and really engaging for my 4 yr old 😋


    We have just started using our Storytime Chess and I am very impressed. The stories really capture my sons attention and easily explain and teach him how pieces move (and me too!) I don’t know how to play chess, but I’m learning right along with my child. I especially enjoy the little exercises that teach players proper chess rules. I’ve recommended this to everyone.

    Storytime Fun For All

    I'm learning how to play chess along with my little one and this is such a cool way to learn. The stories are hilarious and I like the pace of that game.


    This is probably my favorite part of the whole curriculum! It is so different and fun! My daughter and I are learning together!!
