I were surprised when the boy asked the sister for a game of chess the other night. Since when did he show interest or start to play chess??
Jamie started it first. He was playing with the chess set. After a while he grew bored of it and left all the pieces scattered around. Jay started to pick all of them and asked his sister to play with him.
The sister obliged and taught him on rules and steps. She ever saw her dad played before and learnt from him. I were listening nearby and did give some tips as they played along. I am not really a good chess player but I do know one or two about strategies.
They played a game and although there was some arguments among the siblings, it went well. It just turned out Jay wanted to play with the chess pieces. For his fighting game. But he did try to play.
Whose know, he may eventually like and play it.
