We gave Roan a chess set for Christmas - she had just turned 7 years old. She picked up how all the pieces moved immediately and was able to play that night. She still loves to play and knows how all the pieces move but hasn't figured out strategy yet. At night instead of reading stories, she and her dad play a couple games of chess most nights.
He said she has gotten his queen a few times but hasn't beaten him yet. She plays with some of the other kids and can beat them, but hasn't beat her dad or Bill yet.
She will bring her chess set this Christmas - anxious to see how she does.
