The seventh

Wow Incredible... the seventh?

This two weeks we have time to practice with a web page.


In this page you can create a book, pasting images the page provides or the images you can upload easily, just dragging them and choosing it as a “prop”, a background...

First you enter on the page and choose the “Pick type of book
Then you can make a friend or other person the protagonist of the story. I have chosen the option “all about me”, and there is a video (you can find it in youtube, and also in Spanish if you have any doubt)
Click HERE for the video of storyjumper or HERE for the tutorial in Spanish.

And here you are my book, click on this link below and enjoy
I am waiting for your books and your comments if you liked it or anything to change.



The second challenge for beginners. There are two easy exercises:

The first one is to practice with the Rook:

Can you tell me how many moves the ROOK should make to capture all the pieces, try it with the less as possible:




And the second one is to guess what is the “Mysterious” piece whites need to capture the black pawn and the black rook in two moves.



Tell me your experience practicing with chess and enjoy playing

See you soon.



I'll be waiting for your videos, comments suggestions...

Happy 2018

Happy new year to all followers and friends.

After such creative Nativity Scenes I have received it’s time to play chess again.

I had a great time during my vacations and I have been visiting some friends, one of them “Profesora Tecla” inspred me to challenge you to try a new APP on your mobile phone.

I am going to show you a video, how to get Check Mate with a Queen and a King, and being very careful not to fall into the “stalemate”, all you know that means a draw.

WATCH THE VIDEO



And now try to make a short video using the app “PICPAC” in this site http://picpac.tv/ I got this app in my android and it is not very difficult.

Send me your videos

The second activity I propose to you is for beginners and I propose two games:

     The first one:

Here you are a Chess Board with black pieces on it, try to place a White Queen in order to capture as many pieces as possible.


Do you remember the value of each piece? Have a look on the blog in the label “The Class”: And tell me how many points could you get with that Queen (adding the value of all the possible pieces to capture).

      The second one:

Watch this Chess board and...

You have to tell me how to get Check Mate in one move with the white pieces.


Send me your solutions as usual,
by mail explorajake@gmail.com

Enjoy and keep trying

Happy Valentine's Day
