'No Stress Chess', a game that will help you learn the world’s greatest game – Chess. You can play instantly because the special game board guides you to set up your pieces and each card in the innovative deck shows you how to move the piece it pictures. You just set the pieces on the board, shuffle the deck, and begin to play! No Stress Chess teaches players the moves of all the Chess pieces. The game is played on a regulation Chess board, but doesn’t require the movement knowledge or planning of Standard Chess. No Stress Chess can be played at several levels of difficulty, gradually introducing players to Standard Chess in incremental steps. When you’re ready, just flip the board to its Standard Chess board side and play the authentic 'king of games'.
Players alternate (first white) turning over the top card on the draw pile and placing it face up on their discard pile. Next move a piece of the type identified and pictured on this card. The card always explains how you can move this type of piece. Most pieces can be moved one or more spaces along a straight line.
Among games, Chess has probably inspired more study than any other. Hundreds of books have been published about its strategy.
Contents include two sets of Standard Chess pieces (one white, one black), a two sided chess board, a deck of 56 action cards and a black plastic card tray. Most action cards identify which piece to move and how to move it.
