My question is twofold:
- What books, websites, or other resources do you recommend?
- Any tips for teaching a very young player?
He already knows all the basic moves and rules. [more inside]

Is there any site which is as awesome for playing Go with a friend as lichess
is for chess? "Awesome" means more specifically lightweight (dial-up friendly), browser-based, ad-free, no registration required.

I'm looking for some decent "vs" puzzle games that I and my 3 young boys (10 and under) can play against each other on my mac (a fun and silly chess game would be a plus, too). We have 2 macs in the house, so any online options would be welcome too! TIA.

Hi, does anyone know where to find a network chess game that is open source (free basically)?
I'm a teacher and I want my class to play each other at chess during an ICT lesson.

My 6-year-old daughter has recently developed an interest in playing chess. We have a blast playing together, but I think it would be fun for her to play against the computer (or other novices) during her "screen time." What are some good computer chess games/websites that would develop the game of a young novice? Free is best, but I'd be happy to buy something (Win XP) if needed. Pretty graphics would be a bonus, but aren't necessary.
