lighthouseacademy Posted June 30, 2009 Share Posted June 30, 2009 My 7 yr old is loves chess and will play his dad any time he gets a chance. A few days ago my almost 3 year old found the chessboard on the floor and the pieces were not on the board. She proceeded to set up the board correctly in order to "play mommy"! I was shocked that she knew how to set up the board correctly. Then I second guessed it because perhaps my son had set it up and then left to do something (he sometimes does that) and she had taken the board over. Tonight, after my son was in bed, she was matching all the pieces talking about them "now the bishops"... and then proceeded to set the board up again to play daddy. Granted the only pieces she moves correctly are the pawns, and there is absolutely no strategy to her random game, but I was shocked that she knew how to set up the board without anyone ever telling her how. Anyway, I needed to share with someone. I hope you ladies will understand. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
