NEED HELP CHOOSING A LEVEL? SOME TIPS FOR YOU!
Are you a beginning player?
Start out with the Beginner Levels or lower Training Levels. These levels restrict the computer’s search depth, resulting in weaker play and giving you the chance to learn about the game and perhaps even win! For even more of a shot at winning, combine one of these levels with the Easy Mode, so the computer can’t think on your time!
Are you and intermediate or more advanced player?
Try the Normal, Training, or Tournament Levels. The Normal Levels range from easy all the way up to a difficult 10 minute response time, and the Tournament Levels are extremely challenging. The Training Levels allow you to set your desired search depth -- as you conquer each level, go on to the next! And don’t forget to try the Blitz Levels for some fast and exciting games of Speed Chess!
Want to experiment?
Use the Mate Search Levels to solve problems up to mate in eight -- try searching from a position in one of your games, or set up an actual mate problem. Choose the “Infinite Level to have your computer analyze complicated positions for hours or even days!
