Super game

I'm generally a single player. The graphics are very easy to follow and I really appreciate the undo button as that has taught me to rethink my steps until I learn to defeat the computer.

When I do play with a friend on the bus or train or somewhere, it would be better if the board could be static like a real chessboard when played by two people. Currently, the board only show up one way.

But a brilliant free chess game all the same. Thank you.

It's ok but....

I like this game a lot but when you choose the hardest difficulty it start to cheat and do moves which are not allowed and I cannot do them. As once I killed their queen and was going to win but it suddenly just said checkmate and made me loose which I didn't. I even have picture proof. There might be a flaw in the scripting forbidding me from winning when I was clearly going to.

Great for proof game composition

I use Chess Free to compose proof game chess problems.
Stripped down and simple, it's great for that. Would be even better if one could put enter arbitrary diagrams rather than starting from game array. Also minor point it would be nice to be able to undo checkmate or stalemate. Thanks for all your work.
