Do you know a good Chess Game? I mean something that is very hard to beat?
The one preinstalled on ubuntu is very hard to beat...but I do suck at chess.
The last time I looked, Fritz is the best commercial chess application. Chessmaster is another.
The 'dasher' that comes with worldchesslive and Internet Chess Club is good too. It has offline engine that is hard to beat at higher levels.
Of course, more fun would be to sign up online and play some grand masters. those would be hardest to beat. You can try online trial. Just be careful it's highly addictive. (personal experience)
too bad they don't have a free trial for online games, but i'll try it.
I just checked. ICC does have an online trial of 7 days. ICC has some very good players even at lower ratings. Definitely worth a try.
When I started WCL there was a free 14 day trial. Now I have an account. I think you need to download the software to get the free trial in WCL but I am not sure.
I'll play ya, i'm pretty good.
in the confirmation received, they said i get 2 weeks free trial, i confirmed with paypal but when i try to log it says "Account expired, use website to renew"
however thank a lot for pointing this site. i'll make it work somehow
Fritz is by far the best computerized chess game that exists.
I'm working on becoming a master, myself. Only rated about 1600 atm. *sigh* Long way to go, but it is a lot of fun
usually players appreciate games for their graphics and design, i hope this is not a criteria for a chess game.
While Fritz certainly has great graphics and design, the program is geared more towards individuals that are serious students of the game. It plays better than a human, and in fact drew in a match against Kasparov and actually beat former world champion Kramnik in a match.
I've been playing the one that comes pre installed with Vista, "Chess Titans"
I have only won once on the lowest difficulty
I was a much better player when I was 12 (9 years ago) and it makes me angry to get my ass kicked every time
yeah, that's what i hate in chess games: clear patterns
