Gold Membership allows full, unlimited access to the entire site and unlocks all of the ChessKid educational features: all of our Levels (with interactive, guided lessons), unlimited live chess, slow chess, all 10 computer chess levels, puzzles, puzzle duels, computer workouts & more than 800 educational videos – with new content added all the time. The game history for Gold Members saves all of the games played on the site.
