  1. I am a Middle School teacher. I have a lot of young boys who are interested in playing chess. I am looking for a chess game where they can see how the game is played. I also would like to have someone who knows this game well to explain and demonstrate how the game should be played. They are very anxious to learn. Can you help? Contact me at or the email below. A field trip is possible. Thank you.
