  1. Some beautiful ideas, here, thank you! Sticking to the classics, Chess is a great way to help build planning, problem-solving, and pattern-recognition skills -- and it's something you can do together! A board and chessmen of one's own -- be it a simple travel kit or one the elaborate themed chess sets available -- can be the perfect incentive to take up the game, either after a lifetime or for the first time.
