Chess develops logical reasoning, expands critical thinking, strategic planning, along with spatial analysis which in turn improves focus, concentration and test results; all the while the kids are having a blast.



Chess consists of an opening, middle and endgame.  In order to win, you must win in the endgame where there are a handful of Chess pieces remaining, but with infinite variations.
