Disclosure: While this post was definitely not paid for (I did pay for the game) I wanted to tell you about our love for board games. There are amazon affiliate links throughout and if you click them you might earn me a Starbucks. That would be so nice this week.
It’s Board Game Friday!! What does this mean? Simple this is the day the family and I decided on board games and play. I love Fridays. This week I picked Harry Potter’s Wizard Chess Set! Soccerboy (Antonio) got this game for Christmas from us. He’s a big Harry Potter Fan (like myself) and he absolutely LOVES Chess so the two went hand-in-hand.
Harry Potter’s Wizard Chess Set is NOT like the game before you ask. No, they do NOT move around the board by themselves. Nor do they kill each other, etc. This set has two mesh bags (black/silver) with the pieces fitting nicely inside each bag. The board and game rules fit nicely inside the sturdy box. Sadly the pieces are light plastic, I don’t know why but I thought they would be heavier, maybe even stone. But each piece has detail in them.
Teach Chess to Young Children:
When did you teach your kids to play chess? Years ago I was homeschooling Antonio and he expressed interest in watching Chess on television. I saw how much love he had just watching it. Not wanting him to miss out on anything I went to the library and borrowed a really old book on learning chess. I figured we could learn the game together and play it too. Even if he didn’t like the game at least he’d know how to play it by the time we were done reading it. At this time I simply bought a dual set Chess/Checkers.
