Yes, I really do spend all day with the Amazon Holiday Lightning Deals in a window in the middle of my desktop, lest I miss something neat. It’s… kind of pitiful, I know, but it’s also taking care of gifts for the rest of the year, so I’m okay with it.

In about ten minutes a deal is going to come up there on this No Stress Chess Set, and I’m going to jump on it. The reviews are amazing, and I’ll confess that I am so lousy at chess that I have refused to play with my kids. Even I could hone my skills and learn to play a decent game this way, I think. I’m intrigued. [Edited to add: $8 shipped with Prime!]

(And yes, there’s a whole batch of new deals going live at the same time. I have no idea what sort of system they’re using to determine how many deals go live when, but this upcoming 1:00 p.m. Eastern mark always seems to yield a bunch.)


  1. I’ve got that game and it’s the ONLY way I would ever have learned chess. In some ways it’s like chess with flashcards and “no stress” sounds so much nicer than “for dummies”.

  2. Did you see this toy kitchen for 70% off at Amazon? Very cute, and a great deal at only $38!!!

  3. That chess game is awesome.

  4. We love no stress chess…it’s a great way to learn. Now if I could just beat my 9yo, I’d be really happy!
