Not heard of that one, but for my PSP, I have Online Chess Kingdoms. Needless to say I enjoyed the game, and it would apply to all ages. It's out of date now, maybe this is a similar game, not sure!

I think this one definitely would!
Natalia is undertaking a separate work, almost in secrecy, that will cause a commotion in the chess communities all around the world: she is writing the book "Chess Kamasutra", which will teach chess using sex analogies (and vice versa, she says).

I suppose most readers will not remember that there was a pornographic chess set in about 1975.
For example, the bishops were fondling little boys' heads. I have no intention of mentioning the other pieces.
The shop keeper who sold them had them withdrawn from the shop window by police order, probably much to his delight. The publicity was considerable.

Interesting story, Stewart - thanks for sharing it. You would be correct in the supposition that I don't remember it, since I was aged -10 at the time.
