Good Game

This application makes chess play very fun!
normally my friends and I don't have time to play chess together ITS such a time-consuming game and with work schedules (time) makes it hard to play on a real board...I like this game because I can play with my friends and family and keep up with what's going on with them...The app has a few glitches here and there that could be improved sometimes the other person makes a move and there's no notification let me know that they actually made a move can take forever for a move to go through to the other user otherwise I get the game five stars ....the look and feel is awesome... I like the colors I like how it shows you your possible moves ... I love the stats it keeps... Great experience

Won't log in to Facebook

This app looked like it was probably going to be fun. I'm a Words With Friends user so I'm used to Zynga and already have an account. This app does seem to work fine, but it has one glaring problem. For me, the app simply won't log into Facebook. It will try but then will generally give me two messages, one after the other.


We can't seem to connect with FB properly right now. Please try again later."

"Account Already Connected

This Facebook account has been connected to another user."

I've tried everything from deleting the app and removing its permissions from Facebook to changing my Zynga account information, nothing works. The app allows me to play games using my Zynga account, but it won't let me use Facebook.

Even if you don't have this problem, there's another disturbing thing. I decided to go to the game's website to try to get help. The website didn't cover my problem, so I tried to contact customer support. When I clicked appropriate button, a message appeared saying that "the intertubes are broken." This means I'm left with a broken app and no way to fix it. Until this app gets better, I'm only giving it two stars.


I don't know what was thought of when the developers created this game, but accessibility for Voice Over users was not a thought. I like the game's concept, but the overall gameplay is horrible. I can't even move around the grid successfully which ruins the entire prospect of a chess game to begin. I rate it 2 stars for the concept. To make this game better, I would like to see a drastic change in Voice Over support where a VO user can easily move over the board and the pieces are clearly defined. If that is implemented, I will spread news of this game to so many other people that will download this game. I end with a positive note in first saying that I like the chat system and I look forward to testing out the implementations wich I am sure will be put in to place.
