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 children as young as 3 using silly stories, custom chess pieces, a unique chessboard, and more. The stories and supporting materials communicate the rules of chess in a way that makes learning chess fun and straightforward. Best of all, no chess experience is required for parents or children to learn.

”It’s definitely a fun way to learn to play chess and sharpen those critical thinking skills.”Read the Review
My son loves this set! He learned all the piece names and moves within a few weeks and wants to play chess all the time now! The story makes it fun and easy to remember moves. We love it!
This game is genius. It really teaches kids how to play chess so they can understand how all the pieces move.
Who would've thought I'd be learning how to play chess right along side my 5 year old! Wonderful approach to teach the game. My daughter has also used the game to make up her own game using her imagination. We have enjoyed it.
Fun and is a great incentive game. Do the writing and we play this game.
I really wanted to get this for myself too! I have always wanted to learn to play chess, now the whole family can learn and have fun learning. I love this catches the attention of young children to adults! Looking forward to our chess matches as a family.
