************     Now you can play with or without Chromecast device     ************

This app does not contain AI mode.  Player can only play against another player not against machine.  However, app will observe all standard chess pieces movement rules.  Those included basic, castling, pawn promotion, and en passant moves.

There are four game modes:
Game mode 1:  -  Play On A Single iDevice  -  Two players play using a single iDevice.
Game mode 2:  -  Play On Two iDevices Via Local Wifi  -  Two players play with individual iDevice via local WiFi.
Game mode 3:  -  Online Live Via Game Center  -  Two players play against each other live across Internet via Game Center.
Game mode 4:  -  Turn-based Via Game Center  -  Two players take turns  -  not live  -  across Internet via Game Center.

For game modes that required two iDevices:
A.  Player can choose to resign the match which will result in a loss.
B.  Player can request for a draw game.  The match will result in a tied game if the other player agreed to.

The match will end with result in a won/lost status if:
A.  Checkmate.
B.  One player is resigning.
C.  Take turn timeout expiration for a player.  This only applied to game mode 4.  The player with timeout expiration will result in lost match.  This timeout is set at 24 hours.
D.  A king has been captured.  This resulted when a player's king was in check but the player did not make a defensive move to remove the threat.  The other player will capture the king when his turn to move.  Note that app will highlight the king and all attackers involved.  But it will not prevent a non-defensive move.

A.  There are only kings left on game board.
B.  One player has only a king chess piece left and the other player has a king and a bishop.
