description & information:
Learn to play chess. Use your wits, learn to think ahead, have fun and excitement AND learn a whole lot about chess: this great Chess adventure has all of this and more in store for you! Together with Prince Fritz and his cousin Bianca learn how to play chess, then test and increase your knowledge in a whole range of exciting games and situations. How do you set-up the board? What is stalemate? When do you call it a draw? What does opposition mean? And what is an "up the stairs mate"? Find the answers to these questions and many more in animated games and contests. Tips and tricks are explained step by step. Then you can provide and test your skill in the special games and tasks. And once you have got the hang of everything, join Fritz to take on King Black in the grand finale.
Fritz and Chesster does not teach chess in the usual way. It does not set up a board and explain how each of the pieces move. Instead it targets children who have never played chess before in their lives and teaches them the basic rules in a Sesame Street like environment. There are cartoons and stories for the children to follow, and then there are tasks for them to solve interactively.
Fritz and Chesster won the 2003 Bologna New Media Prize
