    New Challenges Please

    I'm done with all the games, and found only two discrepancies. One was in "one move" and one was in "two move". The games were ok but a bit too easy (especially the one move games). I woul like to see some 3 and 4 move to mate games. Any chance of that?

    Really fun!

    I love how it's a bunch of quick little puzzles that you can do really fast as many or as few as you want. Just great when I need a little entertainment but don't have time to get into something longer. Really nice design too. I think my son will be interested pretty soon as well.

    Too easy - beginner level

    You can argue it's a waste of money, unless you bought it for your six year old. Two stars because there are no glitches and the price is quite fair.

    Serves its Purpose

    I'm very rusty and inexperienced in chess, so even though I personally found these puzzles to be very easy overall, they were still a good refresher and fun. And they will be great for my 6 year old son as I start traching him the game. I haven't finished all the puzzles yet, but I did come across one glitch in puzzle #60 of mate in 1. The king has an out, so it isn't check mate. I also agree with another comment in that additional puzzles mating in 3 or 4 would be awesome, and I would certainly pay much more for that added challenge.

    Good game!

    It was fun for the most part but on puzzle 28 on two moves the black king was in check the whole time by the white rook.

    Someone should have proofed their problems. Problem 6 in the two

    Someone should have proofed their problems. Problem 6 in the two movers has a mate in one;  problem 28 the black king starts in check, I think NxQP is a prettier mate than the one given in problem 49, BUT the interface is nice and the problems make a good warm up even for more advanced players. I'd like to see the number of problems doubled and please check your work.;

    Good thinking

    I enjoyed the challenge. Other games beat me quickly because I am a beginner. I would have liked more puzzles.
