55. Challenge or Challenging

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.

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

  3. 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.

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

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

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

  12. 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!

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

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

  16. 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….

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

  18. What a great match to this theme. Great photo too :)
