Awesome App for Chess

I highly recommend people to download this app, it’s free and helps you learn to play chess. The puzzles are extremely fun, it lets you choose what level your playing against when your playing against a robot, and it even lets you play against other people. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that you have to find the other player instead of the app finding you one when you’re playing against another person, if you don’t understand what I mean, I meant that instead of the app automatically finding you a partner, you actually have to physically convince someone to play with you, in other words, the app is just a chessboard when your not playing against a robot. However, overall this is a very good app for playing chess.

Love this game

I have always had a weird interest in chess, I was taught how to play very young. I love books/movies/shows about chess but rarely read or watch them. So every 2 or so years I remember how much I love it. This time, what reminded me was reading The Queens Gambit (highly recommend by the way). But I didn’t have my chess board and not many people who would play with me so I downloaded this game and love it. It’s also a way to play discretely because everyone thinks it’s weird for a 14 y/o girl to like chess so much because it is for Russian guys w glasses and man buns.

The App refuses to loose gracefully

The App chooses its moves based on the probability of success. If it determines that it can not win, the App will attempt to put you in a revolving door of “check” positions or move for a stalemate. I can understand the stalemate as in a tournament, a stalemate at least allows for each player to receive a point. At least in the tournaments I have played in. However, having the App move it’s pieces continuously back and forth without being able to win, is pointless. It just makes the game go on and on unending. I’m not Mathew Broderick and this isn’t a game of Global ThermoNuclear War. There shouldn’t be a no win situation or at least a no stalemate situation. The App needs to be programmed to lose as much as it is programmed to win. If the pieces the App has to use can not put the player into checkmate, the App should not be able to continually put the player into “check” basically forcing a new game to be started.
