How did you guys learn chess

I have a vague memory of learning the basics as a kid, but I never really understood it and much preferred checkers. I only got into chess as an adult when I saw the Kickstarter Storytime Chess set. Since I will be student teaching soon, I thought they might make good gifts for my host teachers. And then I thought, if this chess set is designed to teach 3-year-olds how to play, then surely I can learn! So I downloaded an app on my Kindle, one on my phone, and bought Once a Pawn a Time chess set on Amazon to learn how as well. It's a slow process, but I'm glad I found chess.com too; this site has been very helpful, and I am now realizing just how much fun chess can be! (I suspect I will enjoy it even more when I actually starting winning. grin.png haha)
