Absolutely agree and that is why my wife and I have spent 20 years making, teaching and donating chess games and number games. Unfortunately these 2 subjects intimidate store owners, parents and teachers alike. For this reason we made the Tic Tac Chec game to introduce chess and eliminate as much as possible all the intimidating aspects of learning such as too many pieces, discouragement from losing pieces, lengthy play time etc. Our number games of 123 OY start with the simplest of number concepts and work up through 10 different games and numerous variations to include the options of using exponents and roots etc. Note I use the word number games since the word Arithmetic intimidates people. Even the Harvard After School program recommends them. Unfortunately we might have to finally move on this year since few stores, even so called learning stores seem to really care about quality educational games.

Don,
This is the first I have hear of your game Tic Tac Chec. I run a chess club for Big Brothers Big Sisters and would love to use your game to help the beginners. I normally teach the "Pawn game" to get folks started, but it's nice to know a game that incorporates other pieces. Would you be willing to donate a couple games to our organization?

I agree with the author that this game can help kids learn about good decision making and strategy. I also think it boosts their self-confidence and critical thinking skills. Thanks for sharing!

Sincerely,

Elisha "Eli" Wolfe

Hi Eli,

This is Don's wife. We'll be happy to donate a couple of Tic Tac Chec. Just email us at don@dreamgreen.org with your address. Maybe your kids can graduate up to our Noble Celts Circular Chess Board soon!

Best regards,
