This is an awesome app for chess players who would like to improve their skills. My favorite things about this app are the training videos and the different difficulties. The only con I have against this app are the in app purchases.
I always wanted to play chess but never really had a means of learning how to. So far this game is slowly teaching me the basics and it's pretty fun. I actually haven't experienced any bugs just yet which is a plus.
Unfortunately terrible, filled with bugs
I played the 5 year old 3 times and won all three. My stats are that I played 15 games, won 5, tied 5 and lost 5. Not a math genius but, 3 not equal to 15. Its calls the draw wrong, when it's clear there is a winner. Still the game if working correctly creates a fun environment for chess.
