Read the Secret History of Chess and Learn How to Become a Chess Master

Read the Secret History of Chess and Learn How to Become a Chess Master

Where does chess originate from? Some people believe it’s from India. I honestly don’t know, but I think some historical context might be helpful if you want to introduce the game to your kids.

Mark Price, father of two girls, decided to write a fictional story for his daughters to tell the history of chess. The story is called The Foolish King, and it is set in a magical land where kings and dragons still rule the world. You can buy the hardcover version of the book on Amazon as soon as it’s released. But, you can definitely give the iPad app a try, because it is available today.

The Foolish King

The book is divided into 15 chapters, where the first four chapters are used to set up the main characters and the background story. The kingdom of Stur is the location where the fairy tale is told. King Marra and his advisor, Woogle the Owl, rule the kingdom wisely. The king and his people love to grow plants, and compete to see who can grow the largest and juiciest pear.

Rescue the Goldfish in Busy Water: A New Pipe-Connecting Puzzle Game from Edoki

Rescue the Goldfish in Busy Water: A New Pipe-Connecting Puzzle Game from Edoki

Looking for a new game on the App Store is not always a pleasant experience, especially if you’re looking for a suitable game for your kids: one with no third-party ads, in-app purchases, or unnecessary use of the Internet. That’s why we pay close attention when a well-known kids’ app developer creates a game for kids.

My game pick for today is Busy Water. It’s a brand new puzzle game from developer Edoki, where you connect water pipes of different shapes and manipulate water to help a fish get back into its tank. The concept is fairly simple to grasp, but it makes for a fun and addictive playing experience.

Steer the Fish to Safety

You start by learning the basic gestures in the game: tap to turn the pipe and drag to move or attach it to another pipe. Once you have the hang of it, you will encounter a level that forces you to rotate the device upside down to solve the puzzle. Soon afterwards, you’ll learn that you can tilt and/or rotate your device to control gravity, and thus decide where the fish and water will go.
