BibleBeltCatholicMom Posted September 20, 2012 Share Posted September 20, 2012 Any ideas for free or really dog-gone-cheap resources for me to learn to play chess? I already pay a pretty penny for sewing and fiddle lessons so I'm just not willing to pay much at all for this. I'm also not sure what format would work best for me. I don't really think I'd like to spend MORE time online but then again, what else would be free? A book that could be got for cheap would be good, I guess. My husband and daughter can play but I just get frustrated playing with them. I'm still counting . . . one, pawn can go here, two, pawn can go here. One, two, three, horse can go here. My husband and his boss play at work and they play by the clock grabbing and flinging and clock smashing and I hate that. He can play like a normal person but he's still faster than anything I want to play. My daughter can play either way but somehow, if we have time for a game of chess, we have time for something else and never do it. I did ask my daughter to be my chess tutor and she was pretty excited about the idea but, as above, we'd probably never get around to it . . . unless we had a cool/interesting/really effective kind of book or lessons to follow. so, any ideas for mom to learn to play chess?
