Why couldn’t the app be better?

This is a bad app. I have barely ever gotten through a full match without a glitch, usually forcing me to quit the app and restart. The other people’s complaints about the rake size and leaderboards are also totally valid and super annoying.

The concept is just about the most fun game idea I’ve played. It frustrates the hell out of me that this hasn’t caught on more, because if I could play this game with an app that people would actually want to use, I would be incredibly happy. Getting reviews from Hikaru and Eric Rosen is great, but I think with a functional app this could really take off, and I hope it does sometime in the future.

Great fun & potential, poor app

Great game, so much fun particularly if you are decent at chess.

Done really poorly.

A) Any chess based app needs a good leaderboard. A list of people with 999M chips as a “leaderboard” is useless. Must integrate some kind of rating system.

B) How is Hikaru not visible anywhere on the app? (see A). He’s your most high-profile player, many people are only here because of him (same with Anna Rudolph).

C) Fair play: a tough one, but when one of the top “gurus” listed has 900+ wins and 10 losses, you aren’t even trying.

D) Terrible bugs. Game just freezes constantly. I bought into game with 50k chips, just a blank chess board appears and the game doesn’t start. After a few minutes kill app, restart, and I’m down 50k chips. Also some weird bug where king makes illegal move and game shuts down.

I also am suspicious that many players are actually bots. You always get a game within 15 seconds and they play like bots. Always make the perfect move to avoid mate but can’t mate their opponent with two rooks vs king.

Great game, recently improved app

I’ve always really enjoyed this game. Gameplay is balanced and it requires both poker and chess skill. It’s not as if one aspect totally dominates the game which I like. The app used to be really buggy, but a lot of bugs mentioned in older reviews have recently been resolved with updates, so I’d definitely recommend giving the game a try. I expect it will only get better since it’s still a relatively new game.
