Do you know Animal Chess? It’s a very interesting game. Animal Chess is a game for children. There are sixteen chess pieces in two colors, red and blue. The game can be played by two people and each person chooses a color. There is an elephant, a lion, a tiger, a leopard, a dog, a wolf, a cat and a mouse on the chess pieces. Each of them has their own skills and war abilities. They use them to protect themselves and kill other animals. The victory of this game is determined when one of the chess pieces goes into his opponent’s cave.          
When I was child, my father taught me to play this game. In the 1990s, I bought the Animal Chess Set in China. I taught my son to play this game, too. This game is one of my fond memories of my childhood, as well as the memories of growing up with my son.          
In my future, I will play this game with my grandchildren.
