Here is a YouTube video I made on how to play Chess. It explains the rules in a single video, using Zillions-of-Games to illustrate the rules as I describe them. It should be suitable for teaching the game to children who can't read yet. Since I recorded it at a high volume, turn down the volume before starting to play it.
