Story Time Chess is the only game that can teach chess to children as young as 3.

Story Time Chess is a board game that teaches chess to young children using silly stories, vibrant illustrations, custom chess pieces, and a unique chess board. The stories and supporting materials communicate the rules of chess to children ages 3 and up in a way that makes learning chess simple and fun. Best of all, no chess experience is required for parents or children to learn.



I really like Story Time Chess!  Teaching kids to recognize patterns, understand action and consequence, as early as age three, is valuable training whether they go on to play chess or not.  I started at age 6, but if I had the opportunity, I would have started younger.  It should be available to children everywhere.

Children Need Chess

Parents want to do everything possible to get their children ahead. Chess is a game that has been proven to be beneficial for people of all ages. Learning chess leads to increased test scores, stronger critical thinking skills, an ability to plan ahead, improved executive functions, and so much more.

When learning chess, the younger you start, the more beneficial it is. However, chess has rarely been accessible to children under the age of 7. For young children, Story Time Chess is like a set of training wheels for a bicycle. Parents can get their children ahead by experiencing the full potential and impact chess can have by introducing it to their children at the youngest ages possible.

Story Time Chess includes:

Beautifully Designed Storybook

Stories are an incredibly powerful educational tool. Children have an astounding ability to retain stories down to the last detail. Telling a child an abstract rule may only confuse them because they have nothing to connect with. Instead of telling children what something is, Story Time Chess is perfect for showing the rules of chess – through stories.

Exercises For Each Piece

Each chess piece has its own story and exercises that explain how the piece moves in a fun, silly, memorable way.

Matching pieces and board

The board has characters that match the pieces, making board setup easy!

Custom Chess Pieces

With our custom chess pieces, the children are able to connect the stories to the pieces more easily. By visually seeing the characters and physically touching the pieces, children are able to learn chess without realizing it.

Each piece is designed to hold the character from their story in order to communicate the rules of chess effectively–and have fun!

Double Sided Chessboard

Our double sided chess board and custom chess pieces are made from high quality, child friendly materials and are regulation size for tournament play. Players can either use the story themed side with all of our characters, or the standard chess side for regular chess.

Cloth Storage Bags for Pieces

Brightly colored storage bags for your Team Chomper and Team Shaky pieces.
