    Great for 2 players at different levels

    My wife and I play and she's more of a beginner. This board allows one player to get more assistance than the other. So, this allows us to play really competitive games against each other. So, this board makes the game fun for everyone to play.

    My 2nd Review

    I wanted to give this an additional 5 stars after playing it almost every night since receiving it a couple weeks ago. Although I love my Millennium King Competition and bought this ChessUp as a secondary computer, I've found myself gravitating to this one. I've just fallen in love with this thing as it is so user-friendly and playing on line is so simple. I normally don't like legal moves lighting up and thought I'd be annoyed by it, but, it hasn't bothered me at all. Everything just feels perfect as I play on this computer. There is seriously NOTHING I don't like about it! Every day I grow more fond of it. It is really a joy to play and a no nonsense user interface. I just wanted to give it another shout out in hopes that others will jump on this and have as much fun as I am!!!

    Nothing Else Like It! Excellent for all players!

    Just got mine today and have played several games on it. Newcomers will appreciate the levels available as it is one of the easiest computers to beat on easy levels. Nice board quality and pieces. The lights work beautifully and in my opinion this offers the best way to learn how to play and will continue to entertain as you improve and become an advanced player.

    Absolutely Love This

    Bought this for myself and my kids to learn chess. Theyre under 10 and we have all learned from reading books and playing with a regular chess set. But the enthusiasm wasnt there and we got bored learning. Then we got this and the kids have all been playing non-stop. As have I.

    Pros
    - Play against the AI and select how hard you want it to play. Then set your side up to assist as much or as little as you like.
    - When you touch a piece (depending on the setting) it will tell you where the piece can legally move and by lighting up red, blue or green you can see the best moves.
    - Not sure where to move? Touch all the pieces and see which ones light up green. Kids love that. Very educational.

    Cons
    - Doesnt work with any of my Android phones - needs 11 and up. Which is a shame because Android phones are so good they last for years. My 5 year old LG GS5 is still going strong but only Android 5. There should be a web option for bluetooth computers where you dont have a compatible phone. However it will work in basic mode without a phone so its still playable. For this much money though I think they should tell you up front about what it is compatible with.
    - It seems to cheat. It will recommend a move and then instantly take your piece. This might be a good sacrifice for a seasoned player but I dont see moves far enough ahead yet.
    - Game strength seems to be random. On the easiest setting I can win game or 2 with not too much stress, and then on the next game it will come after me with a vengeance. Maybe its trying to challenge my skills.... unfortunately because there is no phone hookup I dont know - maybe on the phone it would tell me what it was doing.
    - No feedback - maybe thats on the phone too.
    - Very poor instructions. Again maybe its on the phone - we got the basics on the website - but its very basic and the FAQs are not well developed. For example - Can I take back a move? Change my mind? Or if I make a mistake and knock over a piece I just see lights and am not always sure how to et back to where I was so I have to start over.

    Overall I love it and would buy it again. Hopefully they will improve the app capabilities soon :)
