About Story Time Chess
Story Time Chess (https://storytimechess.com/storytime-chess-the-game/) is based on a chess teaching method that has been utilized and perfected over the last 12 years through a New York City-based company called Chess at Three, which has successfully taught over 100,000 children in the last decade how to play chess through stories. The same story-based curriculum being used by these tutors is also being licensed by over 1,000 schools. The brand-new game compresses 12 years of knowledge from teaching young kids how to play chess and the result is a beautifully designed game that can teach any person from age 3-103 how to play chess through fun engaging stories and exercises.
