Ani,

"Don't look at ME."

I never really learned. My older brother beat me consistently. I gave it up. I quit! When I was 10. Shame... . My loss. Again! ;) --Joe

If I read and implement CHESS FOR DUMMIES, maybe I can be up to speed in a bit. But I don't even have a checker-board.

And I'm not even sure there is such a book as "CHESS FOR DUMMIES". Maybe there is. There's everything else for dummies, almost.

I just hope there's no "ZEN FOR DUMMIES".

But here's a very fun book. Great cartoons. And actually some good straight information. Written by a couple of formal practitioners, who've practiced with the late John Daido Loori Roshi, of Maezumi's lineage (and some Tibetan people, too). Take it with a grain of Gomasio.

Ani,

Well, I've forgotten everything, and knew little to begin with. I have no idea how to set up the board, and how pieces move. I am a blank slate. I'd be happier to have the physical objects, in order to learn. But I don't predict that I'll invest the energy. I may have missed the time-window to learn chess.
