Chess by post Review

I haven’t played this game in a while and I’m still losing, but I know the pieces. Although, I don’t know what I’m doing but I’m getting it a little bit. Chess by post is fun and a little boring but when you play for a while, it might see quite fun. in my opinion, I say that this game is fun and good for people to do when they may or may not be really ready to do the real thing. I give a four star rate for this game but right now I’m always losing and I mean every! But I just need to know and play the game more but I think it is a pretty good game. 👩🏽

Plan Moves and Game Analysis are awesome

I had a chess kick a year or two ago with a popular chess app. And this one is so much better because of two features

1. Plan Moves let’s you play out scenarios so you can see how a given move could play out. (You essentially pause the game and play for both players for a bit and then rewind when you’re ready to try a different move or actually make your move.) I feel like I’ve learned more about chess in my 6 games on this app than 20 on the other because I think through everything so much more clearly with this feature

2. Game Analysis uses an chess engine to analyze every move made in the game and show you how good it was by comparing it to the move that the computer would have made. Very helpful for getting new ideas based on how the computer would have handled something, and also just kind of fun to see a chart of who was in a better position at which points in the game based on which moves

Highly recommend

Bad players

First off, I would like to say, I love this game around the site that you have provided. Thank you very much. On another note, there are players who are abusing The system. If they feel they can’t win the game. They will just let it go for the amount of move time. Vern just before their time runs out, some of them within minutes. They will make a move and start over again with one move. My suggestion is to cut the wait time to 36 hr. The 4 or 5 days is too long. If they can’t play in this amount of time, then they should not play. Thank you.
