I don’t know about any of you — but I find these chess pieces help because I definitely find this game challenging! Ed took this one at the Higgins Armory children’s room.

I have never learned how to play chess, so even with the guides, I’d feel challenged.

Chess pieces with a built in cheat sheet!

What a good idea! I’ve never learned either because there was so much to remember. I never found anyone with patience to teach me. These pieces would make the challenge more accessible.

BTW – on your blog roll, it’s Bobbi-ID.

Brilliant idea, but still a challenge for me too.

I could use this set, maybe I would have a chance of beating my husband or boys lol

That would be a great learning set. I like the way shot it so that you can see the kids in the background.

Your perspective is spot-on in this image. I do love these chess pieces.

I could use this chess set . . . good composition.

Great perspective and color – Ed really nails these shots! I loved this chess set, too.

I wonder if the black pieces have the same markings? Do we have a scam here:)

The black pieces do have the same markings – this is set-up in a learning center for children at the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester, MA — it’s so cool. I would love to have seen the children learning to play but there were not any that day.

With chess pieces like that, I might actually be able to play!

never seen chesspieces looking like that, quite educational and good for us who forgets…..

I can almost feel the smoothness and tactility of the piece as I place it down.

What a great shot! Having played (a term I use loosely) it is the strategy that I have problems with – now if the pieces could only plan their moves….

I’m going to have to look for a set like this…would love to learn but I’d definitely need a cheat sheet.
