The principle of
Fritz & Chesster is
that you can insert the CD into a computer drive, fire up the program and then
leave a child alone with it if necessary. After a few weeks the child will come
to you and say: "Can we play a game of chess?" It will have learnt all
the rule - we are talking pawn moves, castling rules, promotion, mate,
stalemate, everything - and even understand a bit about strategy and tactics.
Naturally you do not need to or indeed should
leave your child alone with the program. In fact we have discovered that it is
often usually children and their mothers who pick up the game. The
fathers usually get hooked on the sub-games, battling to keep ahead of the kids.
