This you tube video is a hit with kids even if they don’t know how to play chess.
Mrs. WhiteI'm a chess enthusist that loves the game!
The White’s are going international, well just for the holidays. We are fortunate to be taking a cruise to the Western Caribbean with Warren’s immediate family for Christmas this year! We are looking forward to our next adventure and playing chess in the warm weather again! Where will you be playing chess this Christmas? We wish each and everyone of you a Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years! […]

When we recommend games for your family we’re not recommending more toys to clutter your child’s closest or playroom. We encourage you to have special activities or games your child gets to play with just you or the whole family. It is this time they cherish the most because they get to do it with you. Most of our IQ games are solo but if you sit down, help and […]
If your 2-5 year old isn’t interested in playing chess with you, put the chess board away! We recommend instead teaching about castles, queens, kings, knights etc., we have added some Melissa and Doug items that work for us! Some of these can be found at your local toy stores. You can also let them dress up as there favorite chess piece (we will be adding costumes next year) or […]
One reason I love “Teaching Chess Step by Step” is the activities and exercises starts with the pawns game. Warren and I use this teaching method for players that are just learning chess for the first time. Starting with all 32 pieces that have different movements can be overwhelming. Starting with just the pawns teaches players how pawns move, capture and their special power of promotion. Once our players understand […]
Spice it up a little with a recent game “Pie Face”. Should be called Pie in your face. When my nieces first asked me to play I was hesitant! After a few rounds all the adults and children were sitting around the table counting clicks just waiting in anticipation to see who would be the next one with a face full of cream! I definitely recommend cheap cream and having […]
Having a baby we have so enjoyed watching her achieve new milestones! Some of the toys she chooses to play with surprises me. Before becoming a mom I would always try to find gifts that excited my nieces and nephews, but now getting to see what my daughter chooses to play with at 11 months old blows my mind. She prefers plastic colorful objects or wooden! Colorful strings and tags […]
Our first Chess Square One, designed for absolute beginners, children and their (grand)parents. “I think our society would benefit in many ways if parents spent the time to teach their children chess. The bonding experience alone is amazing and the skills kids get from the game will help them in life. Plus their immediate schooling would be enhanced,” Laura Sherman, Tampa, FL, author of Chess is Child’s Play. Chess Square […]
Warren and I decided to adopt a dog after moving into our apartment community in Alpharetta, GA. As dog lovers we knew adoption was the right option for us. Like many things, we were thorough in our search visiting multiple shelters throughout the metro Atlanta. The task of timing our search with Warren’s birthday a few years ago allowed plenty of time to research the proper dog training techniques and […]
I know a reputable chess instructor who would like to add at least one new chess coach to work four afternoons per week to assist with chess in after-school programs. Program times differ for each school, but only require being onsite each day for 1 1/2 hours. The pay is weekly and private chess lessons will be offered to the person selected. Coaching candidates must be able to pass a […]
Warren and I have stepped up to the starting line. We recently took a vacation back to Georgia! Upon coming home we have decided it is time to get our priorities in order. First things first we need to get back in shape. One thing my family has always supported is a healthy life style. Fitness and Mental! I remember in my early 20’s watching my sister completing the Chicago […]
