Chess for Winners is a great way for kids to expand their chess knowledge. It contains an excellent series of Mini games that explore advanced chess theory. By presenting meaty concepts within a whimsical game format, kids can learn complicated tactics in a less stressful way. Cleverly, the Mini games break down the components of strategy into different levels, and make good use of animations to help kids visualize what is happening.

Compared with the first in the series, this software has less of a storyline. Even so, it's well worth exploring if you have a child who already plays chess, and especially if the child enjoyed the first two titles in the series. The teaching of chess strategy is done in such a way that kids will find it fun, not overwhelming.
