Summary: I have 7 and 8 year olds, and our boys love this game! I've always thought DS offers no education, but this one is different. If you have a basic chess skill this is one you should get. My boys like this one as much as they like new super mario bros. Get it if you can. Check your local Gamestop preowned section. I purchased it at Gamestop at 14.99 (preowned) Highly recommended.
Summary: Got this for my husband, an avowed chess geek for Christmas, hoping it would keep him interested for a week or two. He's still playing it in February, and he is really good at chess. Yay for Chess Master.
Great game but, like many items, not eligible for Amazon Prime

Summary: This, like its PC Game counterpart, is a great chessgame (at least as far as games available for Nintendo DS and the PC go). However, and unfortunately, because it is actually sold by Target and not Amazon, it is not available for Amazon Prime benefits like free shipping. I have noticed that more and more items are being sold thru Amazon by third parties. This makes Amazon less useful and the Prime account virtually useless!
Summary: My 6-year old and 7-year old love this game and the fact that they can play chess with each other using only one game card. They are novice chess players, but with this game they can really expand their skills.
Summary: I gave it five because for the platform you use it on it's great and I'm having fun. I don't think for the price you can go wrong. Not exactly a lot of different chess games out there for handhelds to compare it to. Not perfect but fun.
Summary: Chessmaster is the ideal programme for Nintendo. Comprehensive and versatile. The portability and screen clarity make it ideal for use anywhere without the need of a PC. I would recomend it to any chess player.
Excerpt: come al solito eccomi a recensiere un gioco per nintendo ds diverso da quelli tipici, che ci posso fare, i classici giochi ds che hanno tanto successo difficilmente mi appassionano. piccola precisazione, non è un gioco di carte, non so perchè qui su Ciao ...
Pros: livelli diversi, minigiochi per imparare le basi
