Turn your iPad or iPhone into a virtual chessboard for two players to play face-to-face. Experience the symmetrical chess piece designs and other innovations in 2P Chess.

Basic version of Two Player Chess.

Two Player Chess (2P Chess) turns your tablet or phone into a two-player chessboard for two humans to play face-to-face. One person can also play against the inbuilt AI.

Improve your chess game by getting hints for the best moves in review mode.

You can play offline as no internet connectivity or sign-up is required!

In the real world, face-to-face chess works great with 3D pieces however in traditional 2D representations the pieces would be upside down for one player.

Symmetrical chess piece designs and other innovations in 2P Chess mean it is now fun and easy for two people to use a tablet or phone to play and/or learn chess.

2P Chess provides an excellent tool for teaching chess as you can use a single tablet or phone device together and see legal moves highlighted.

Two Player Chess requires no internet connectivity and no account so you can use all features from anywhere.

Best chess app for table top games with friends

So much good here... the unique symmetrical icons, the built in timer, the optional notation. No other chess app comes close in terms of quality local play, ease of use, and beauty. No problems yet. The fact that, as of this review, this app (and its ad-free alternative) have fewer than 40 combined reviews is positively criminal. Way to go, Adrian McPhee: hope to see more from you on the future.
