When Eldyn had to stay home with me last week, he finally got his hands on the coveted “Chest Set.” He was in heaven because his brother wasn’t there to impose all those nonsense rules. I was also eager to see how Eldyn played chess and now I know.
- Set up all the pieces. It really doesn’t matter where you put them. They don’t even need to be on the squares or in a line or anything. The important thing is that ELDYN sets them all up.
- Look hard at the pieces. Then pick one up and set it down somewhere else. Again, don’t worry if it’s actually in a square. Clearly the horses are the best so move those a lot.
- There is no taking turns. Eldyn does the first four moves. Then it’s “my” turn but Eldyn moves my pieces for me.
- Enough is enough! Time to clean up!
