  2. Problem-Solving: Navigating through opponent pawns and avoiding being "taken out" involves quick thinking and problem-solving.

  2. Sportsmanship: Learning to win graciously and lose with dignity are valuable life lessons.
  3. Turn-Taking: Waiting for one's turn and respecting the game's flow teaches patience and the importance of fairness.
