Summary: The 5 stars say it all... this game is GREAT! I'm just a beginner and know that this will enable me to grow into a better one! The package arrived within the timeframe given and I couldn't have asked for more! Thanks to everyone involved who make this a tremendous experience! I can't believe all the negatives people have written about this chess game as my experience is just the opposite; all the things it says it will do, it does and... it is such a good teacher for me!
Summary: I picked this up because it seemed to me that a chess program was a must-have for any game (artificial intelligence) system. I like chess well enough, used to play a lot as a kid, but don't have a whole lot of time and mental energy as a working adult. Not only does Fritz Chess have the best ELO capability for any DS game, but I love the fact that you don't have to commit yourself to playing an entire game.
Summary: I came to this website to purchase the game "Fritz Chess" for the DS and was disappointed to find it was out of stock with little hope of it ever coming back. Luckily some days later a few copies of the game were made available and I was able to order one. It was shipped on Jan 12 and arrived on Jan 16 in excellent conditon. I was elated! I have played a few of the practice games and find them entertaining and somewhat instructive.
Summary: Fritz Chess is a great game to teach yourself how to play chess. I have 4 chess games and this is the easiest to learn on. It's not hard to understand and doesn't get as boring(as fast as) the rest. Good Choice!
