Chess Challenger provides an attractive virtual chessboard and pieces for two players using one computer. This game provides all you need to play chess with a friend anywhere you have your computer. Chess Challenger is a simple application that is a pleasure to use as an alternative to a physical chessboard. Like a physical chessboard, it provides a board and pieces. There is no AI to complicate the experience by checking the validity of chess moves or playing against the computer. Nor does it have networking to play someone at a distance. It is a simple, easy to use, application that facilitates a fun game of chess between two opponents using the same computer. Over time, more information will be available at our website, HomeBasedGames.com. Please feel free to contact us through that website with any questions and feedback.More

Simple and elegant, like a REAL chess board!
Beautifully simple and approachable for two chess players who know how to play. Simulates a REAL chess board by not validating moves or doing other things that unnecessarily complicate the game or limits the game's potential for use with chess variants. This is the best chess game application if you and a friend are just wanting a chess board and pieces on your tablet. The simplicity and elegance of the application are wonderful!More
Works as advertised
The reviewer below probably didn't click to "read more" on the description. It clearly states that there is no move validation. This is more for people that just want the chess board. It's good for improving your game against a real opponent, when you don't want computer aid. There are times when I will play against friends or family with custom rules and just need a board. The simple style also runs really well on low powered processors. I got what I thought I would out of it.More
Fun little app to play on your slate device. Nice, simple, and approachable. I love how you can play with two "live" people vs. having to play against a computer. Let's the kids challenge each other at their level!More
Chess rules are not defined
Apparently, you can move any piece anywhere, and you can move out of your turn. So, following the rules of the game depends on the players themselves.More
