Learn how to play chess, the world’s most popular board game! It’s easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it and start winning. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game! Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you’ve ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.

Making paper airplanes doesn't feel like science. And it's not quite art. Near as we can figure, it's magic. Sure, paper airplanes fly because of good, old reliable physics. And it takes a sharp eye and a clean fold to make them right. But launching a regular old piece of paper into the sky so that it soars, loops and glides - that's pure magic. We present here a complete guide to folding aerobatic amazements. The ten airplanes in this book are the best we've ever seen: easy to make, forgiving of mistakes, attractive and flight-ready under all kinds of conditions. Clear instructions and step-by-step illustrations make even the most impressive planes kid do-able, while trimming and tweaking tips give basic principles of flight instant real-world relevance. This big (10" 12") book comes complete with 40 sheets of flight-tested, ready-to-fold paper, printed on both sides in a variety of 20 colourful patterns, including leopard print, wood grain, hot rod flames and lose-it-on-the-lawn-grass. It's everything you need to rule the skies. Comes With: 40 sheets of custom-designed paper.
