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!

Using this website and app for gifted students

Our gifted program 2nd through 6th grades, in our medium sized city is using this program. I have the students use the app on their devices if they have access. Many use the website only, or in addition to their app.

This app is amazing. The students love to play me in slow chess. They play each other on the fast games, and have grown in their knowledge an skills as chess players.

We hope to form chess clubs at our schools and maybe city-wide at some point, and Chess Kid will be a part of our program.
