Endless Chess / Endless Chess

Endless Chess

For children, chess can not only be a cultural heritage, but also develop children’s logical thinking. It can help children develop brain thinking when playing and have a great help in the future development of brain.

However, in remote areas, children have no access to this simple chess.

"Endless Chess" is a mold to product chess. If there is an "Endless Chess" in supplies transported to remote areas of school, local schools can copy the chess with the use of clay, cement or waste paper, which make everyone have their own chess.
