If your children already know the basics and want to hone their chess skills, turn to the newly-released Learn to Play Chess with Chesster and Fritz 2. Continuing the interactive adventure format of the first title, King Black is back, causing trouble. This time he has trapped Prince Fritz, Bianca, and Chesster in his dungeon. They can escape only after winning a series of chess-training arcade games that teach specific chess openings, middle game tactics, and endgame moves. Before this adventure is over, kids will have explored 21 challenging activities, including navigating through a swamp to learn chess notation.
