"I really like doing puzzles. I have done a lot of puzzles and my rating is going up! I also like the videos, especially from Fun Master Mike. I've seen almost every one. I'm really enjoying playing chess with my friends on ChessKid."

- Lucas

"More than a few of my students have shocked their teammates by suddenly moving from the bottom of the ladder to the top! I credit ChessKid for making chess so fun that they want to keep watching videos, solving puzzles, and playing games!"
