Yamie Chess - math/chess/stem toy for kids

03 February 2014 - 06:08 PM

Okay. just seen this new chess/math toy called Yamie Chess on my friend LA Examiner Derek Odom's site ;), looks cool. does anyone else play chess here? good to see new games for kids pairing chess and math together, the most i had as a kid was playing around with calculators. then maybe meccano. pulled pic from their homepage, got to be the most chess-driven educational toy i've ever read about...





The Hobbit

I don't think it has been said here, but has anyone noticed a certain similarity in the Hobbit between the scene where Tauriel heals Kili from the Morgul wound with Athelas and the houses of healing in Lotr?


Now I think the houses of healing chapter in Lotr was cut by Pete Jackson, so I wonder if he thought of an opportunity to putting some of the idea back into the films at this stage? This would be typical of Peter Jackson if this was the case.

Hey everyone:)

Can't believe I've just found this site only today, well better late than never. I'm Matti from Finland, computer science student currently in Australia on study placement. What else, umm? japan/pokemon lover, chess addict, general good guy:)
