"Chess is an easy-to-learn game which provides educational benefits to K-12 students. Recently I learned about Tic Tac Chec, a chess variant which (like chess) promotes problem solving among its players. My son and I played several Tic Tac Chec games and together figured out a few strategies for our next playing session--Dr. Alexey Root, author of " Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators."

"One of our most popular teacher items. Tic Tac Chec teaches chess unlike any other product we've seen! A must have for any classroom!" Jeanne Voigt - Owner, Mindware catalog

"Simple chess! This beautifully crafted wooden board game combines Tic Tac Toe with chess to provide kids with an easy and fun way to learn chess strategies.
