Prepare the kids for the new school year and add "ThinkSMART: Chess for Kids"
to the back-to-school list. More than learning chess, this video game pits two groups against each other: the "Clean Slates" and the "Black Sheep." Pick a group to lead, outwit the classmates and take home the tournament cup. The game includes all skill levels, and hint and undo options for newcomers.
