Practicing Checkmates

Checkmate is the end condition of chess. As you learn to play chess for beginners you should know that whichever player does checkmate first wins the game. Checkmate means that you have trapped the king of your opponent. A king can save itself from checkmate through CPR, Capture, Protect, Runaway.

It means that the king can capture the piece attacking it. It can also protect itself and counter-attack or it can run away and save itself. If the king can do none of these moves and there is no way left for it to save itself, it means that it is checkmate, the king has been captured and the game is over.

As the king is the main leader of this game, therefore, it is not captured and the game ends before the move in which it would be captured.

This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.

Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
