Description:

No Stress Chess is a chess board with pieces and a deck of cards displaying how the chess pieces can move.

You can play instantly because the special game board guides you to set up your pieces and each card in the innovative deck shows you how to move the piece it pictures. You just set the pieces on the board, shuffle the deck, and begin to play!

No Stress Chess teaches players the moves of all the Chess pieces. The game is played on a regulation Chess board, but doesn't require the movement knowledge or planning of Standard Chess.

No Stress Chess can be played at several levels of difficulty, gradually introducing players to Standard Chess in incremental steps. When you're ready, just flip the board to its Standard Chess board side and play the authentic "king of games".

The game is designed to teach how the pieces moved, in the learning versions of the game, players play cards from their hand of either 3 or 5 cards in order to move the chess pieces on the playing field.
