- Importance of chess -
Chess is one of the ancient games in the world. Chess has become so increasingly popular that there was a time when chess was considered "Royal Game", but is now a common source of entertainment for a common man. In many parts of the world (in schools) chess has been introduced as major part of the curriculum, because chess increases the mathematical and scientific skills of the students. Chess also increases the problem solving skills, a sense of confidence, a self-worth and the communication skills.

Ratings and Reviews
Am truly grateful to have this system in my cycle of references & resources! In my late years am reacquainting myself with Chess, as a means of staying mentally sharp; as well as an outlet, to quench my competitive nature, enjoyably! Respectfully Thankful, xSpyridonGermanKoukouzelis
Good game my dudes
What more can I say
It’s the best chess game I ever played! Great music and graphics, and is a good challenge. I really like save/load/redo options, many other chess games don’t have those options. ‘Show legal moves’ is helpful as well.
