A great game

I have been trying to learn to play chess for years and no one could ever teach me until I downloaded this fabulous game that teaches you strategies and more and makes a complicated game entirely exciting I am now playing my friends and winning. Also when the game froze I was immediately consulted back with information that worked customer service stellar. Thank you again for sooo much fun!!!!!,

Original, great all around game

Typically I don’t enjoy playing chess against a computer. This game is educational, fantastic for beginners (ignore reviews that say otherwise, they are written by people who just can’t get it). Win games to move along and complete the mission. Beautiful graphics

Not for beginners

I'm not a beginner, but I do not recommend this for those that are. Almost immediately, on the get paun to the other end and cause checkmate goal the computer level is way to high, it's very hard to beat (and this it isn't even an actual game yet, just training). They expect you to know how other pieces move before you've learned about them (to cause that checkmate I've mentioned earlier.

Please fix this game.
