    Question At what age did you learn how to play chess ?

    I am curious about something.


    At what age did you learn how to play chess ?


    The reason why I am curious about this is because in my case it was in a very early childhood. At the age of 4 and a half to be exact.
    So I am wondering if this can be used as indicator for childs "talents" later in life.

    The poll is public because that will provide alot of info and the question itself is not too controversial.
    All votes are welcome.

    I never learnt. I hate chess, it's so boring.

    I think I was eleven. I went through a stage where I really liked chess and even thought about joining the chess club on my lunch break.

    I learnt most card games, chess and lots of board games from 4.

    AO how are you comparing this to talents gained in later life?

    My grandfather taught me how to play at a pretty young age. I guessed seven. I just remember that I beat everyone I played in elementary school.

    Well I created this thread exactly because I am not sure about this.

    For example I have learned it early and no one was there to "force me" to learn it. So at the ago of 7 I was already into computer strategy games.


    Basicly throughout my entire life this approach is something that makes me different from most people around me.

    I had a 6th grade science teacher who thought it was necessary that all children learn to play chess. I think I was about 11 or 12.

    I will say it served me well when I was about 12, I discovered a friend of mine could play so we went to chess 'club' so we could get free tea and biscuits while the rest of the year played pogs in the freezing cold.
