Chess Junior - Chess Sets for Kids

Chess Junior - Nominated 'Golden Rocking Horse 2019'


Chess Junior is the kid-friendly version of the classic strategic board game that everyone knows and loves. It was developed in order to help adults teach kids first steps how to play chess in a fun and laid-back way.  


With haptically designed game components, such as a sturdy

game board made of large robust puzzle pieces and wooden playing figures, even younger children can easily transfer the simplified starting positions from the instructions onto the board and start playing.


The parent-child tutorial with explanations of twelve mini-games complements this set and makes it the ideal beginners chess set for kids. 

CHESS JUNIOR  Thrills Children!

Chess Junior as a präsent for kids

Why mini-games?

At the beginning (when playing with all 16 chess pieces), children do not know exactly which piece to move and which goal to pursue. This can lead to a loss of interest in the game of chess.


Mini-games are simplified chess situations with short 

playing times. At the beginning both players play with

only a few pieces. The Chess Junior-learning objectives 

are the rules of movement for the chess pieces, attack 

and counter-attack, cover, double attack, as well as

stalemate and checkmate.
