Katie has been begging to learn how to play chess, so I pulled out one of my old chess sets and we played a game this afternoon. I learned several things, some of which I already suspected:

  • Katie is really too young to be learning chess
  • My chess skills have atrophied alarmingly
  • Katie really wants to win
  • And that isn't going to happen when the thing she most wants to do is push pawns and take my pieces, regardless of value

    We'll try this again some other time. :)

    Happy New Year everyone!
