Even if the goal is not to teach the child chess, the brain games here are recommended for developing thought-process and logic. I seriously look forward to the time when I will be able to sit down with my young daughter and share this game with her. Daddy won't mind teaching himself, but this is a great (enhancing) tool for learning the game - and learning to think, in general. They have created a game that will develop young minds and help open new doors to a oft-misunderstood game. With the help LPC2 can offer, young players can learn faster and gain better confidence if they are struggling with some of the "think-ahead" aspects of the game. I am sure it has helped me develop, and I am an adult that has been playing for .... decades.
