Select the Move (2 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Introduction


This is the first book in the Select the Move series.
This book has many large clear colour diagrams. You do not need a
chess set and board to read this book. You do need to know how to
read standard chess notation.


Playing through master games is a proven method of improving. One
method is to take one side, usually the winning side, and try and
guess the next move. With practice you will correctly predict
more moves. Doing so helps develop chess fluency.


When I was a junior I played through many master games, in many
cases guessing the moves. It helped me to become national
Junior champion.


One suggested approach was not to take too long on the moves, say
about 10 seconds or so. You could score correct guesses. If the
move was totally unexpected, then it would be a good time to see
if you could understand why the move was played. Every move
should have a clear idea behind it. If you cannot see the idea,
there is a learning opportunity there.


Some books contained similar exercises as well as some columns in
magazines etc. The exercises here are a little different.
Instead of having to look at all possible moves, you will be
given between one and four choices. This is similar to a multiple
choice exam. This makes the task easier than having to look at
all moves and may mean you examine some moves you would not have
normally considered.

How to Score


Chess rater consists of a collection of 20 old master chess
games. You may simply play over the games for their own sake if
you wish. To use this program to the fullest you will choose one of
the games and play over them and take the role of the winning player.
The winning side will always be playing up the board.


There are some advantages to using games from the pre-computer
era. The games are not so theoretical and not cases of players
relying on deep computer assisted opening pre-game preparation.
They are a selection of games which demonstrate a lot of positional ideas.


Initially all the details of the games will be displayed.


For a number of opening moves you will not need to guess the
move. The number will vary from game to game and will generally
be between 8 and 12 moves (for each side).


After these opening moves have been played, you will then try and
predict your players moves. Your choice will be selected from a
number of candidate moves. In a few cases you will only have one
move to choose from. In this case you shall get the correct
answer. In most cases you will be presented with the maximum number
of options which is 4. In same cases there will be 2 or 3 options.


If you guess correctly you will score points which will range
from 1 to 6. This depends on the approximate complexity and
difficulty of the move. If you score incorrectly you will not
score for that move. Regardless of whether you are correct or not
the correct move will be played. You can either write down or
otherwise keep track of your total score and see what category
you reach.


RATING


The score for each game will always be out of 50.
Scores may vary from game to game so to get a consistent rating
average your score over 10 games.

Contained within these pages is a fun, stylish look at game systems that aren't normally covered like the Famicom Disk System, Magnavox Odyssey 2 and Neo-Geo CD. Mark suggests recommended games to collect for each game console that deliver the best bang for the buck. For example, when collecting for Sega Genesis start out with The Revenge of Shinobi, Altered Beast, Super Monaco GP and Sonic the Hedgehog. For Atari 2600 you should always begin your library with Yars' Revenge, Berzerk, Super Breakout and Combat.

Filmed in the studio and outside, Mark photographed videogame consoles in environments where we don't normally see them so that we may appreciate their styling and industrial design. "Most people don't travel to the beach with a Sega 32X, but I do".

If you love video games and wood grain, you'll love the Ultra Massive series and may find yourself inspired to begin collecting for something new! In addition to playing Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One you may find yourself immersed in the world of Intellivision and Vectrex.

Trivia War Books (5 Book Series)
From Book 1: When was the last time someone around you brought up World War Two?

It’s a pretty popular war. Maybe you heard about it yesterday. Maybe last month. But it was probably recent. And when it came up, did you wish that you could be the one to casually drop a fact that would have everyone in the room going, “Wow, I never knew that!”

With this book, you can be that person.

You can read it in just a few minutes a day.

Chapters are bite-sized and easy to read, meant for normal people instead of war historians!

Each chapter ends with a bonus helping of trivia and some quick questions to test your knowledge.

You’ll zoom through this book and be hungry for more.

Get ready to impress your friends with your knowledge – not just of the main events of World War Two, but of all the gritty details and weird true facts. By the time you finish this book, you’ll have a fact for every occasion, from the first moment someone thought about having a second World War, to the most recent blockbuster movies about it.

So get ready to meet characters from Adolf Hitler, rejected art student, to Jack Churchill, the broadsword-swinging male model. Find out why World War Two started in the first place, and why it’s never a good idea to invade Russia in winter. Learn why the United States was going to stay out of the war, how Canadians stole airplanes for the British, and what an orange soft drink has to do with the Nazis.

Some of the things you’re going to learn are sad. Some are scary. Some are sexy. And some are downright strange! It’s everything your history teacher never got around to telling you.
