This game is a great way to improve your game by playing with strangers and your pals. After a few games, it starts to match you with players of your caliber. The more you play, the better you get matched. There's also a nice chat feature in the game. I've made a few friends who are perfect matches and play regularly. Also, there's no rush wth the games. You have five days to make a move if your life gets too busy to focus on the game. There are a lot of ads in the game, sometimes it's like you get an ad screen after every move. Sometiimes the ads dont show up for every few days, it's kinda odd. Anyhow, they aren't manditory, there's always an X to quit the the ads. TL,DR; great games, play with friends or strangers. Cool chat feature to make new pals, espescially if they're awesome partners. Ignore the ads, just quit 'em. Get the app.
CHESS This game is literally the BEST chess game there is... you can play so many people at once and from around the world! It's amazing playing people from all over the world really helps you expand your knowledge on chess as well as better your technique. I've never played in a competitive level but if I did this app would be were I'd practice.
Doesn't understand the rules of chess This app forced me Into accepting a draw due to repetition when only my opponents moves were repeated. Mine were not and each resulted in a new position. It was in the endgame and I was moving my king up to support a checkmate. I was given the option to accept a draw or cancel my move and no option to refuse the draw. This was certainly not a case of threefold repetition and a chess app that doesn't understand the rules of chess is useless.
A poor user experience. The ads are long, and often include audio which is both disrupting and pauses whatever other app you have running. Playing the AI Chesster is horrible! It takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 days for him to make a move. What kind of "robot" takes two days or more!
Fun Game, but could use improvements. I like playing, but I feel it could be a better app. When I try to push the game I'm wanting to make a play on, I usually have to hit it multiple times before it opens that game. The home screen is also busy with a lot of stuff that I don't need when only playing people I know. I'm not interested in playing a bunch of random people. Can we move all that stuff closer to the bottom of the home page??
I love that I can connect with my friends and play with anyone if my friends are busy. We can private chat during and it shows me their last move and everything!! This is definitely a five star game! The only thing that could make it better would be like.. themes. Like changing the way the pieces look. Something like that. But it wouldn't be an improvement, just a bonus :)
