Really Bad Chess is just like chess, but with totally random pieces. Try 8 Knights, 4 Bishops, and 3 pawns — why not?

As heard on NPR's Weekend Edition

5 out of 5 Stars "An essential puzzle experience for anyone even remotely interested in strategy games" - TouchArcade

Whether you play chess daily, or quit just after learning the rules, this small twist will open the door to an entire new world of chess.

The free version of Really Bad Chess lets you compete vs. an AI in Ranked, Daily, or Weekly Challenges. Improve your skills using the included Freeplay mode. A single in-app purchase unlocks Versus Mode so you can compete against your friends locally! It also removes ads, displays captured pieces, and adds soothing alternate color-palettes to choose from.


"Makes chess fun even if you’re really bad" - The Verge

"Feels more modern than chess has ever felt" - Applenapps

"Really Bad Chess takes a really bad idea and somehow manages to make it a lot of fun." - Pocket Gamer

Chess is one of those games I always wished I enjoyed, but its commitment to beauty, elegance, and perfect balance always turned me away. Really Bad Chess removes these boring restrictions and flips chess on its head.

As much as random pieces change the game in some ways, I was really surprised to notice how much the game remains the same, and how powerful some pieces are — you've never truly struggled against a pawn until you've struggled against a pawn in the back row.

For chess pros, Really Bad Chess will give you a new type of challenge — the pieces & the moves are the same, but you'll have to throw out your openings and your understanding of normal patterns of play. 

For novice chess players (like most of us), Really Bad Chess greatly opens up the game. Instead of starting by studying openings, in your first games you'll get to discover the joy (and challenge!) of learning how to checkmate.

I hope you have as much fun with Really Bad Chess as much as I did making it.

  1. Joe O'Byrne-avatar

    Really fun! I'm terrible at normal chess and I'm not much better at this, BUT the concept is clever. The AI is consistently good, but they have worse pieces to work with if you are bad. This really helps you to learn how good you are and see if you're getting better! Also a great game that you can dip in and out of!

  2. Futen Odeku-avatar

    AMAZING. Simply no way to explain how fun this is, even for a chess noob like me. I wish there was a way to rewatch my games (pretty sure there isn't, but would definitely pay money for that). Stick that feature in, and it's 5 stars easy.

  3. Terrance Anderson-avatar

    Terrance Anderson


    Chess has become rather stagnant for me as of late. This fixes that. There are no openings to remember, countless new tactics to discover, and a fun new experience each game. If you enjoy complicated positions and playing the best moves that nullify any of your opponents best move, then unfortunately this isn't for you. The AI isn't very good, and the only time when it's actually challenging is when it has better pieces or starting positions. I wish this had a Player vs. Player. If then, 5 star.

  4. Andeh Renner-avatar

    I think it is interesting in premise, but ultimately just not fun. Random elements make this just another game that you have to drudge with and either hope for something favorable or sit down and theory craft how you can win because you were given something awful. Chess isn't the game that needs RNG, so only play this if you really just want to solve random chess-esque puzzles.

  5. Jester520-avatar

    This game is extremely fun to me, even though i didn't really know how to play, i learned from this and have he basics down and its even more fun that you can make it more challenging and mainly at your pace as well, rather than just putting in a setting to change it to easy, medium, or hard, there is a slider to make it harder one level at a time

  6. Marcus Taylor-avatar

    I love the concept, the app is well made and works well, however the AI computer player is super smart. Now I'm no expert chess player, but I'm also not new to the game, but even at a strong rank, it feels pretty rubbish to be put in checkmate within 4 turns - the ability to alter the computer's strength will greatly improve this game, and is far too frustrating to play until it's added. Shame since I also removed ads.

  7. David Maynard-avatar

    I love it!! You're definitely going to learn how to use your pieces! Wacky is a good description. Each player has a King, the rest of your pieces are randomly assigned 1 to 5 of each! Both sides are random, so good luck with your strategy. Yep, I'm hooked!

  8. Wayne Koch-avatar

    I have played chess all my life and its always challenging but this really bad chess game takes that to a whole new level! Its really bad and thats what makes it unique and so much fun and extremely challenging. This is by far my most favorite game on my phone, every day is a new challenge. Excellent job on creating a great game with the original game who knew you could put a twist on it and mmake it even more fun. Definetley download this if you enjoy chess

  9. Rory Knox-avatar

    You can undo all moves accept for checkmate. Which is kind of annoying. I get in the habit of undoing moves, every time thinking "I can just undo it." But then I'll miss that I'm about to lose and I can't undo it.

  10. sam wolf-avatar

    I really like the idea of changing chess pieces, because now it is more challenging. Thats why I think it deserves 4 stars, But I couldnt play even one game because every time I tap on the app: I see a big alpha, then the screen order changes to landscape, and finally I'm come out of the app. I have a tab S T-805, but I also try it on playgames app and even in windows 10 by bluestacks software, but unforunately the result was the same. Please check that. Thanks

  11. Fred Szafranowicz-avatar

    Fred Szafranowicz


    Very nice. A welcome change from playing the traditional way. You have to be more aware of your surroundings and not over look that the AI could have more soldiers of the same rank than we're normally used to playing against. This version of chess keeps you on your toes, and you have to come up with different strategies, I like that. Good idea in varying how the war should be fought! Thank you.

  12. Aravind Krishna-avatar

    Aravind Krishna


    Really fun take on chess, with one major flaw. It's very easy, even for the ultimate chess noob. Keep that in mind when you play this. However, that doesn't seem to be a problem for the game, considering the target audience for a game like this is pretty young. Even so, it isn't fun for me.

  13. AzHaR-avatar

    The game is fun to play We got to think strategies on the spot and that's what makes it good. It helps to improve our strategy in real board. The game is made pretty well. And when the goes on and the A.I 's coins gets stronger and stronger, winning in that kinda situations is really satisfying! But the undo button is limited and it would be bother to those who use undo alot. I used 1 undo for the past month so it wont b much of a problem for me. Must play if u wanna increase your gameplay.

  14. Raghul Pn-avatar

    Awesome game You may even expect 5 queens and no pawns and of course only one king.. That's awesome right?? You may get a weird set of pieces which makes this game very special. I'm not very good at playing chess, but I enjoy playing this game. This is super fun filled game with same level of challenges as it as in the regular game. Thumbs up to the creator Zach gage!! This is a very creative idea... 👍👍

  15. Sam-avatar

    I really enjoy playing and it's a good chess technic practice. Only error I had was then I checkmate AI it will not show me the finish screen everytime. A few times I had to undo the move and win again or a different win for it to finally count it.

  16. FlyingChicken-avatar

    Really fun concept and game overall, BUT I would like to see 1v1 as part of the base game. Would increase playerbase easier and make me a daily player. In its place, put in an option to pay to remove ALL ads; not just banner ones, but the 30 second ones too. Would totally pay if that was the case but alas. Until then, decent game, 3 stars.

  17. Rory Silva-avatar

    A great way to relearn chess strategy. The concept is sound and well executed making you think multiple steps ahead to earn your wins. Think twice about every move because the ai is challenging but never gets smarter only different pieces. A refreshing take on a classic game that I will continue to play for some time.

  18. Thomas Saldana-avatar

    It's a good idea; it provides a whole nother chess experience. Unfortunately, the AI turn takes soooo fuuuccckkkiiiiinnnngggg looooonnnggg. Seriously, about 90% of my time on this game is spent waiting for the AI to move. If they can fix that, I'll give it 5 stars.

  19. Saksham Gupta-avatar

    It's a great game overall. Will help you make use of each piece.One major problem is that the computer takes too much time to make a move. Of course the black squares need fixing.

  20. harsh wagle-avatar

    I would actually love to play this game. Its very interesting but my only issue is the computer takes longer than me all the time. It's way too slow. It's like waiting for an actual human to play but slowly. Please fix this issue.

  21. Andrei Dragoi-avatar

    I realy like this game, it is a real brain teaser. There are some bugs though, I lost a couple of times although I had at least 5 different moves to get out of chess. I have print screen with that happening but there is no option to attach here to show you

  22. Darrien Hoyle-avatar

    Amazing concept. Really fun to play, even if you suck at chess. Only downside is to play against someone using only your phone you have to pay for. Which makes sense and is smart for a business standpoint, but is still lame and knocks this game down one star. Fun game, would recommend

  23. Aamir Badani-avatar

    This game is amazing but It has a major bug, I'm not sure if this is only for me but EVERYTIME I PLAY RANKED or FREEPLAY, WHENEVER I CHECKMATE THE CPU, THE GAME JUST FREEZES AND I HAVE NO OTHER OPTION BUT TO SURRENDER (I even tried undoing and trying different moves but it won't work) WHICH SUCKS BECAUSE IM SPENDING TIME INTO PLAYING THE GAME AND WHEN I CHECK MATE THE CPU IT JUST DESTROYS MY GAME AND MOOD. PLS FIX THIS BUG. or ANY SUGGESTIONS? Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the bug.

  24. Fenarri Wolfstein-avatar

    Fenarri Wolfstein


    This has so much potential. I love playing it, but being bombarded with ads TRYING to play it is not a great strategy. I don't know why you have ads every single time I try to play a new game, but... it made me delete the app. *insert frowny face*

  25. Ian bowater-avatar

    First of all the AI will always try and protect its self but as you get better and win more, the AI gets better say more Queens and rooks and you get less Queens more pawns To be honest this is game is brilliant so please download it.

  26. Ronald Pascual-avatar

    A game of chess got more interesting and fun, but minus the fun when Ai takes forever to make a move, that's what's boring in chess when players takes so long to make a move and this app the ai also simulates the boring player. There's gotta be something you can do about that, dev people.

  27. Britt Ewen-avatar

    Really cute idea and a lot of fun to play. A little heavy handed with ads and microtransactions. Still not sure if helps it hurts your real chess game.

  28. Benjamin Lewis-avatar

    Lots of fun! The AI is just right for my level of ability! I think there aren't any rules for automatically declaring a draw? Such as their king can make no valid moves but is not in check, or only the two kings are left. Please fix

  29. jaideep dadi-avatar

    Trolling game, you are not getting normal pieces, in some games, you get, like, FOUR queens, and in some, you get five horses, it's an enjoyable game, really!

  30. Tyler Bryant-avatar

    Why did this survey ask me if this was a karate game? Thats besides the point. Once you reach lvl 100+ its not possible to when..the computer has just as many queens as you will pawns! Atleast 4. Oh not to mention your pawns are shoved down in the corners doing nothing and you get one queen. So 1 queen 4 pawns a king no rooks just locked up bishops and knights against the A.I's 4 queens 4 rooks 3 knights 2 bishops no pawns. So i guess i reached the summit of this app in just a few hours time.

  31. Dillon Brunetti-avatar

    Dillon Brunetti


    When there is only 2 kings left, it should be a stale mate. A king can't get close enough to attack and the only way to get a new game is to surrender, lowering the rank. Great game and concept.

  32. The Radioactive Box-avatar

    The Radioactive Box


    I would give this a 4.5 but I can't. I love chess, but most chess apps are garbage. And I want to play chess on my phone, but it is always boring because it is against an AI and not my friends. But Really Bad Chess is a pretty fun spin on it.

  33. Himanish Munjal-avatar

    Himanish Munjal


    The concept is great. Wish someday I come up with an idea like this. But the app hangs a lot or maybe bot is unable to decide which move to make. Hope you guys are not using backtracking for this, please optimise the algorithm

  34. Luke Willingdon-avatar

    Luke Willingdon


    Interesting. Have played 2 games and think the abstract nature of the game will expand my regular chess gameplay. The downside might be a loss of training in patterns and usual tactics, but the tradeoff is likely worth it.

  35. Marcel Weber-avatar

    This game is absolutely frustrating and unfair. I love it. I bought the full version not for the 100 Undos, but to support the developer of such a simple, unfair, frustrating and brilliant game. 5/7, perfect score.

  36. Casey Blankenship-avatar

    Casey Blankenship


    Great variation of the game! Never imagined the game revamped this way. My only concern is the lack of multiplayer. That would of blew the roof off of this game for sure.

  37. Daniel Hanson-avatar

    Good brain trainer. It also helps you practice with the strengths of each piece. Rather than relying on a preferred one all the time.

  38. Legender J-avatar

    It's really awesome way to chess. The random position with random chess piece makes me more aware about the position of different pieces and how to tackle it. Plus it also makes me think about the importance of each and every piece.

  39. Elijah Meyer-avatar

    Its a fun spin on the classic game thats just pure fun to play, and is much more intuitive than the original game, providing a great experience for for both new and experienced players alike.

  40. Eliot Robinson-avatar

    Awesome game but DEVS can you please change those black squares from stripes to solid black. Everyone I've spoken to including myself agree that the stripes are brutal on the eyes and make it really hard to focus. Please!

  41. pixiljuice itme-avatar

    pixiljuice itme


    December 22 2019: Nice, non existing game. Won't start... the screen spins around, then stops, don't know why. Does say really bad in its name though. I'll give you a real rating when it allows me to play. March 4 2020: still isn't there. I have a Samsung galaxy tab 4.

  42. Piyush Surana-avatar

    It's a fun game. My only complaint is why can't I play online with my friends.. I suggested them this game but we can't play together

  43. Sean Ashmore-avatar

    Absolutely great fun and challenging. I'm actually learning to play and understand chess. Really recommend this.

  44. Christina M-avatar

    This game is super fun. I enjoy it a lot and I'd even be willing to sit through the occasional 30 second ad for it. However, the fact that those ads blast music even when my phone is in silent mode is not acceptable, as is the fact that it's a pain to exit. If you hide my phone's back button, the least you could do is put an exit button on the main menu. If you fix those two things, this would be a 4 or 5 star game. I'd also like to see something that shows all of the pieces the AI has captured.

  45. Keith Wallace-avatar

    I really dig it. The visuals and cleanliness is really refreshing. BUT, it seems like a huge missed opportunity to not include a normal chess mode. I'm sure that was a deliberate decision, but one I'd love to see reverted. Not being able to jump back into a game of normal chess after playing some wacky chess baffled me in a way that.. nearly got me to uninstall. But I'm holding out in hopes a normal mode makes its way in. Would like to go back and forth. Anyways, great stuff.

  46. Jake Farrow-avatar

    Really bad chess because it's predetermined rubbish, use as many undos as you like but certain games you're designed to lose, can't get past rank 50 will go on an unstoppable losing streak once I reach it. Uninstalling.

  47. Nicholas Pimienta-avatar

    Nicholas Pimienta


    It's a fun take on chess but it should NOT take a full 20 seconds for the AI to make a move on 5 bar LTE. I'm not sure if this is intentional but PLEASE improve your AI speed, seriously.

  48. Rad Hayes-avatar

    I've also had the problem of my weekly streak resetting at New Years(but not my daily streak), when I know I haven't missed a week because I very diligently play the new boards within an hour of them switching. Aside from that I seriously LOVE this game as someone who loves chess, but gets bored with the classic "openings and counters" format. Been playing religiously since I discovered it. If you're on the fence about trying it, definitely give it a shot.

  49. Anand Vijayakumar-avatar

    Anand Vijayakumar


    This is a really awesome game for somebody who wants to play chess casually. Playing games with multiple pieces not traditionally available during a standard chess game makes this a very interesting and fun game. As you progress and win more games, the ratio of stronger pieces goes to the other side. Highly recommended for casual gaming and for people trying to understand chess.

  50. kaelyn hurlburt-avatar

    kaelyn hurlburt


    Its actually really good chess, because its a challenge to figure out your own custom strategy that you can only use once, because the pieces always change each level. Except the king.

  51. Rikhard 111-avatar

    I like chess, but this is just too hard. I'm probably bad at chess, but still, could be easier for starters. It says that I am rank 0 but the AI is too good.

  52. Andro _-avatar

    1 HUGE flaw that takes 2 stars away... No draws/ties... Its just me and the computer with 1 king each in a neverending game. In actual chess, the match would be a stalemate. Guess you guys didn't think that far ahead when making your game huh...

  53. Stupid Is My Job-avatar

    Stupid Is My Job


    The game's not bad so far, I've started thinking more about strategy than the pieces at play. By that I mean, when I play chess, (first time was like five years ago, and only a few times since then) I usually get so caught up in my idea of there being only two strategies, the first being "oh, I need to defend my king", and the second being, "defeat my opponent at whatever cost." And a part of that was because I worried about the pieces at play. With this amazingly stupid game, I don't have to.

  54. Nathan Byron-avatar

    While this game can be fun and challenging, there are times where the game can crash and exit the app completely. If this happens during a daily board challenge, it takes away an attempt and restarts the board. This of course can easily break a streak due to only having two attempts for the daily board. During freeplay or weekly challenge it's not as big of an issue.

  55. james healey-avatar

    Really fun and challenging. Played about 10 games and only won twice. Really clever app and we'll made. Can see myself getting really addicted to this, super fun version of chess.

  56. paidninja-avatar

    I don't mind the Advertisements but the devs should have made Multiplayer free. Lots of Bugs too. Just shows the money over quality approach of the company.

  57. Angelo Garofalo-avatar

    Angelo Garofalo


    I really enjoy this game! It's simple and fun. However, I am stuck at a king to king 1v1 and I've read online that it's impossible to win, therefore the game is a draw. Since the game doesn't have "draws", my only options to keep playing are to surrender or purposfully lose the game. Please fix.

  58. Arbaaz Patwari-avatar

    Interesting experience. Works just like chess but gone mad with different amounts of pieces. I wish the AI (cpu) would be far better optimised because sometimes it takes way too long to load its next move. In some cases others players' devices have crashed due to this. Furthermore, online functionality would improve the game, crazy piece lineups moved by crazy people would be hilarious.

  59. Freyz Ingart-avatar

    A fun game that puts a refreshing spin on chess. My only complaint is that i bought the premium, and did not receive my +100 undos nor did it get rid of post-level ads--it only got rid of banner ads, which is nice, but when I spend money on a game i don't want ads at all. A fun game. Premium is not worth it however.

  60. Carleen Tejeda-avatar

    I absolutely love this game! It's not only challenging but extremely fun to play. This is my #1 go to, brain teaser game app, while waiting for time to pass.

  61. Zorak Zokstone-avatar

    Perfect. Exactly what I wanted. Brings a new challenge to chess. I even bought the paid version.

  62. Rain Coleman-avatar

    Great way to help chess players pay attention to the whole board. This game really helps broaden your field of view and use your pieces to their strengths

  63. Travis Reed-avatar

    Fun chess variant, especially for those who don't like memorizing openings and counters. The obtrusive ads between games are annoying though, and you have to pay for undos.

  64. Amit Howard Photography-avatar

    Amit Howard Photography


    Fun but I quit. I want to be able to make the same moves as the A.I. at check. Will return when the A.I. is more honest in gameplay.

  65. Shreyas Shriwastav-avatar

    Shreyas Shriwastav


    I would recommend this app to all those chess players who want to improve their positional game. It takes the concept of chess puzzles where you have to find the best move to a different dimension. Here you have to reorient your whole knowledge of chess. And that's what strengthens your focus to analyse the positions.

  66. Genevieve Schiller-avatar

    Genevieve Schiller


    No "banner" ads is a terrible paid unlock. Talk to me when you'll remove mandatory 30 second ads. Until then, I keep my $4. Also, I shouldn't have to surrender in a stalemate. If no pieces are taken within a certain amount of moves and under x pieces are left, it should be a push.

  67. Elliot Hellyer-avatar

    This is a really fun game for someone who is never able to win at chess. I suppose one thing that I'd say is that I wish I could see what pieces were captured from my side.

  68. Andre M-avatar

    I love this idea but it gets incredibly frustrating because the opponent cpu just suicides pieces to capture yours and when they have better pieces there is no winning.

  69. Samo Rashed-avatar

    it's a really good game has a lot of potential it has some of the best cartoonish graphics i have seen in a chess game i just wish it had a normal chess mode of it had that i would give it 5 stars . PS please add a normal chess mode if you want a five star because those cartoonish graphics are amazing !

  70. Bryant Best-avatar

    Low stress, fun, quick game. Playing chess can be stressful, but this game is more fun than stress because of the way the chess pieces are set up. As long as you don't take yourself too seriously playing this game, it could be a fun way to pass time or wind down from your day.

  71. Addie C-avatar

    Excellent program. We all love noodle cake we love their minimalism. This program stretches out your chess muscles and gets you over the ennui of same old same old. ...And don't believe them when they say it's totally random oh, there's a subtle balance at work. Noodlecake needs to try on turn based strategy, chaos reborn is eye candy but what about those 30 million laser squad - Lords of chaos fans...

  72. Ryan Bahan-avatar

    This game would be an easy 4/5 if not for the really long time it takes for the AI to make its move. Otherwise, fun.

  73. Matt Feeney-avatar

    Stupid chess game. If you like the game and reverance of _chess_ then this probably isn't for you. If like the mental challenge of chess, then you'll love this app. Surprisingly, the out-of-the-box, unconventional thinking is fun and challenging.

  74. rufsta-avatar

    Great time waster. But, I was left a King against a knight and a Bishop, so was never going to win, but the comp just stayed defensive, and made no attempt to force mate. No other way out than to surrender. If it can't (or won't) win, then give a stalemate...

  75. joe jackson-avatar

    Decent game but too many bad ads that turn your music off or have pop ups. The design for the main menu is pretty awful too. Daily match should be 2 matches why give me 2 tries when I've completed it in 1.

  76. Benjamin Eaton-avatar

    Works as advertised, but unfortunately playing chess with ads flashing on screen is not for me.

  77. David Broomhead-avatar

    David Broomhead


    Fabulous! Really makes you rethink the game, especially if you've learnt lots of opening strategies.

  78. Louis Green-avatar

    Would be a lot better if it had more options, for example: fairy pieces, definite pawns at the front and the like

  79. Hamd Akhtar-avatar

    The AI is annoying at certain parts. Like sometimes it will check you and you move a piece and it will check you again. Then it goes back and forth from the two same spots until you make a different move that it favors. I feel like either the AI should do different move or just draw the game after 5 rounds of the same back and forth move. It gets annoying when I have to move my valid spot just so the game can progress

  80. Nate Hergert-avatar

    Ok, take random chess and classic rules of defense comes into play. Defense! Defense! Defense! It will win games. Anticipate movements from stronger take downs.

    Free, no ad, brilliant idea - very helpful tool for this newbie to think strategically without anxieties of an open traditional table

    I really like the simplicity. Its take on such an iconic game intrigues me. Unfortunately, nothing in life is for free so if you want more features, which I deem unnecessary, you have to pay. Overall, it is a very good game. I recommend.

    The game board does not fit on my screen. I have a brand new One+ Seven I can't seem to adjust it, so, I have never played a single move. Lots of bad reviews about the AI so I will probably never play. Seams like a good idea that was rushed to production as a cash grab and then abandoned for some other project that was probably just as poorly produced. Don't, Just Don't..

    This game is great, it does exactly what it aims to do. I really do recommend it. It is hilarious to see how friends react to seeing the randomness of the game for the first time.

    Amazing game! So glad i found it. Great way to learn new stradegys for standard play as well.

    Terrible, there is a 30 mandatory ad arter basicly every match u play which last about 2 min so a fifth of your gameplay u are watching a dumb ad. Not worth ur time.

  87. Aaron C-avatar

    Seems really entertaining. And I enjoyed the challenge and flip on the usual norms. But the ads taking over my audio and closing Google Play Music are deal-breaking for me. Other apps are able to continue playing music after the ads, and at least won't close my music player.

    This game is a 5 star game that's completely ruined by how it handles ads. Forced to sit through constant 30 second videos. It's literally faster to force close the app and then restart it than to sit through the ad. You get one every few games or so. Deleting the game for the 2nd time.

    Awesome way to make the same old chess way more interesting and fun to play !...but 2 stars because the game gets unresponsive when we beat the AI in daily game.

  90. Talha Yousuf-avatar

    Great concept, super fun, the ads are a bit overkill though. Has both banner ads, and the obstructive (sometimes unskipable) pop up video ads

    It is what it says, chess that's really bad. But it's really fun and I highly recommend this game if you're bored of regular old chess and want to switch it up.

    Such a fun spin on traditional chess hours of entertainment and throws all strategies out the damn window, probably takes the sink with it too

  93. Michael Saxon-avatar

    Very fun game, full screen video ads with a tiny exit button in the top corner after every match.

    A very wacky concept . Being a chess player it really challenges the brain . As we do not get usual pieces we gotta think which makes it awesome . You get an awesome feeling after giving a checkmate. Keep up the good work!

    Good concent, fun gameplay, good options. But very buggy. A game that I won about a week ago is still stuck on my last move and there's nothing I can do. So many times this way my games haven't finished, and I can't play another in the some mode unless I surrender.

  96. Jec-avatar

    Got a better phone - adore the game now. Processing speed is still sometimes a bit slow, but no longer taking several minutes for single moves

    Its ok the only problem is that the AI take a while to make a move. Other then that its a great app. Fun to play with friends.

  98. James Jensen-avatar

    It's fun for a while. Then they start showing ads with sound after every game.

  99. Don Woodyard-avatar

    Love the unique setups and challenges. Very original and in some ways I like this BETTER than standard chess

    Great game! I have told a lot of my friends about the joys of playing a classic game with new rules. It's also one of the most complete modern versions of chess available on mobile. ONE THING I STILL WANT: PLEASE GIVE ME A WAY TO SHARE THE GAME WITH FRIENDS! Enjoy!
