The “kids” app isn’t just for kids!!

I am a 41 yr-old woman who has wanted to learn chess her entire life. I would always watch others play enviously. I’ve downloaded SO many other “teaching” apps, & w/each one I felt worse & worse. I felt so stupid bc I just could not get the hang of the game…until I tried this one. This app may be geared towards children, but it does an amazing job at breaking things down in steps, then gradually immersing you in the game, so much so that you REALLY start to understand the gameplay. I thought I was doomed bc I’m terrible at math & stategy, but the coaching system gives you hints so that you truly start to get the hang of movement. I just won my FIRST EVER game & I actually screamed in triumph 😂😂😂

I ❤️this app-it’s amazing. Guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!!!

not tellin ya!🐘🦍🦒! sorry. ,

This is the best online chess I've ever seen! ( And the only one)

This is such a great game! When I'm driving in the car ( in the back seat I'm 9) and I want to play chess this is a perfect game to play! The only trouble I have is when you want to play against a human being it's always me against me... so I can say I want Black to win! And it will win. Or I want white to win! And it will win. That's the only thing I want fixed. Other than that THIS GAME IS AWESOME! I advise you to download this game it’s awesome I mean really if you don’t download this I’m gonna go crazy! PLEEEAAASE download this... thanks...

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐️💫 that many stars.

Great game but needs work...

I love this game and I just started and I just got the gold membership and it’s so much fun! But a few of my games I was about to win and my opponent just finished there move and says it’s my turn but then all a sudden I won’t be allowed to to move my piece so I usually use the call a draw button and it works again but then they accept and I was about to win but it was a draw. So if you can fix that it would be great thanks so much! P.S a cool feature you can maybe do is let the players on the match decide there color and talk in the game but NO bullying or trash talking. I’m about to turn 12 and I really think you should play this kid chess game!
