I am not an avid player of chess. Many reasons. Yet when I was first introduced to the inventor of this game whom is wheel chair bound, I became hooked in playing the Millennium Chess Game after playing Bruce Gustin and listening to his story of how he came to invent this game. I now donated my time to help others play the game. My third player I ever showed how to play was a six year old that after playing this game six times I could not beat him. After six years this boy became a young man and is now a RATED CHESS PLAYER. I been playing this game for seven years now and every game I learn new moves, building my confidence, Yes CHECKMATE can be made in six moves knowing there are 60 pieces in play . Others might say why make change or it is a poor game they are so cheated and spoiled and lack the ability to see that this game doesn't take long to conquer the great play moves that is a given in a larger Battlefield. Also if you wanted to the boards can be set up to play conventional chess game. Therefore you need not have two separate game boards. Millennium Chess offers Four different game boards with two sets of pieces for great prices. A roll-up board on up to a Wooden Board. The largest is a Grand Master Board. I own Both. I just saw on the Discover Channel a Clip on how they found a 15x4 game board and it could be the first Chess game board that dates back 3000 years. Makes me wonder did we fool ourselves with the current standard chess game or did we forget that there is always room to expand our abilities to grow? Those that rate this game poor are those that have failed themselves because they didn't have the ability to develop such a great game? Write to [email protected] they will give you the number to the inventor and chat with him about his game or just go to the Dutchess County Fair Grounds next August they been there for the last seven years and it just amazes me to see the thrill on those that play this game of Millennium Chess. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Also I have a link so you can play it on line ~ send a request to me at [email protected] or check out their MSN GROUP TO PLAY (COPY AND PASTE)
