Regardless of your playing level, ZingMagic's multi award winning Chess is a fun, stimulating and challenging game for beginners and champions alike.

Chess is a two player game with a colourful history which can be traced back to its Indian ancestor, Chaturanga. In 1291 the Archbishop of Canterbury in England threatened clergy who continued playing Chess with a diet of bread and water.
The game has flourished over the years and is now one of the most popular board games in the world, requiring thought, skill and strategy to become successful.

The object of Chess is to capture the opponent's King. To capture the King you must place it in check. If the King cannot escape by itself, or with the help of its army, it is in checkmate and the King is captured.

ZingMagics multi award winning Chess application supports over 20 levels of play allowing you to play moves or games against the clock or relax and play at your own pace. Whatever level of Chess you choose, you can be sure that ZingMagics Chess will give you a fun, stimulating and challenging game.

    Disappointed!

    Game 'freezes' periodically, and doesn't allow you to continue playing. It's happened to me twice since I bought it yesterday. If you're serious about the game I don't recommend this app.

    Don't waste your money. Game freezes in progress so you can't complete the game. Buttons don't work half the time as well, Barnes & Noble should remove this product from their inventory! They just refer you to the developer if there is a problem with an APP.

    GEORGE

    The so-called beginner level is FAR too advanced. Simplify it so beginners do not get discouraged. Really, the computer is out for blood even at this level!

    Too Many Bugs

    I have tried playing this game at the intermediate level and I can not complete a game. My pieces will freeze preventing me from moving, the computer will make illegal moves. I do not recommend this game.

    I Recommend it!

    It works great, it gives you options to play at different levels, to play against the computer or with another person and you can rest last moves.
