I love chess. I think it is a terrifc thinking-mans game. I started teaching it to my daughter when she was only 4. It really has helped her develope terrific strategy skills. Her memory has also been helped by it. It also helps her learn the importance of planning ahead as well as having multiple back up plans. It strengthens your mind power in my opinion. It also helps teach patience since it is not a fast moving game if you are not playing speed chess. Chess is a great introduction to skills that will help you in life. I think everyone sould play it.
