Approximately 20 yrs back, I wrote about a chess-training system aimed at youngsters ages 8 and up. It applied various arcade-like video games to train youngsters how chess items moved and captured. It was a new concept in finding out chess for novices.

The program at first appeared in 2003 and was sold on a CD-ROM less than the title of “Learn to Enjoy Chess with Fritz and Chesster.” Kid’s Technological know-how Evaluation wrote about it when it initial appeared, indicating, “intelligent evaluation of the chess items and moves,” and concluded with: “This is the greatest kid’s chess program on the industry.”

Chesster was a Cheshire rat who – as you might guess from the odd spelling of the title – was also a trainer of chess. His two pupils were being Fritz, the son of King and Queen White, and Bianca, Fritz’s cousin.
