CHALLENGE THE CHESS MASTER

Championship Chess with all legal moves possible, including “queening” pawns and castling. Don’t be fooled by its small size. You’ll have to keep your wits about you every second to steal a match from the CHESS MASTER!

CHESS MASTER gives you 3 separate levels of play. You can play at a HIGH level (L1) or at a HIGHER level (L2) against the computer. Or you can play against another person (MA).

NOTE:

    • The CHESS MASTER will support EN PASSANT.
    • This CHESS MASTER will support SHORT or LONG CASTLING.
    • CHESS MASTER continues the game until one of the kings is actually captured rather than ending when there is a checkmate or stalemate.
    • CHESS MASTER allows your king to move into check (but will quickly claim a victory if you make such a move).
    • CHESS MASTER automatically promotes a pawn to a queen when it reaches the eighth rank rather than giving you a choice of pieces.
