Download includes the enhanced edition with the yellow chess board. Some moves freeze the game to a stand still for inexplicable reasons.

The game runs fine in DOSBOX on my Slackware Linux machine, either in window or full screen, the sound is fine as well.
If you end up with a gazillion toolbars and all kinds of crap you are probably using Internet Explorer. Get a real browser and protect yourself with AdBlocking add-ons and a good HOSTS file.
I have a slightly different version of Battle Chess that I think is better, the queen throws bolts of lightening, and the bishop makes a snickering sound when he kills. I think it's version 4.

File downloaded bit won't open nor are the docs recognised by Adobe.
File won't open to full screen without more downloads - too much hassle.

How come I have to down load 40 tool bars and 35 zip extractors and my brand new computer needs to download better software to run a this 30 year old game. What a Fuken joke.

You maybe want to try out the Commodore Amiga version of this game instead. Search the web for a disk image in ADF format and run the game using the WinUAE emulator. The Amiga version is more colorful (32 colors instead of just 16) and has better sound effects.

Okay, I found out how to do it. Ignore my last post. I didn't realize there was a section for that on this site.
Windows 7 64 bit user added this comment :
My PC won't run the game. :(
I am running Windows 7 64 bit, and I get an error message saying that I need to run it in 32 bit. I don't know what to do! :(

I play it in d-fend reloaded and i use the dosbox app to run this game. but suddenly it comes laggy, especially when the bishop take a move. Do you guys have the same problem and if yes, what's the the solution?
I love old games though i'm 16 years old.

WOWWWW. I had this on the :B Drive! Fricken sweet!
Djiango added this comment :
When I move my bishop the game slows down, and becomes unresponsive. Anyone else having this problem? As soon as the bishop has made it's animation the game works again. (Only when I move the bishop.)

I hope this plays as well as it did on my Amiga. The animations were exceptional for the time.

Can any of these awesome old games run on Android?
MilkoBlackWOlf added this comment :
AWSOME!! My dad used to play this a lot! I had so much fun watching the animations, and now i can finally practice on this classic!
The only bad thing is there's no sound x.x (using the suggested program for XP/Vista although im on 7) Any ideas on how to get some sound?

Es la mejor version de mis tiempos de Ajedress, gracias a ustedes pude reencontrar esa nostalgia que habia perdido
Zixlora added this comment :
I can't seem to play them. It keeps saying that my computer doesn't support full screen mode. This is the second game I've downloaded with this computer. I hope my desktop works. Any suggestions?
Digi added this comment :
My favorite animation is a knight takes knight move. Great 386x game, would play it just to see the 'executions'
JhaeJhae added this comment :
Game works in DosBox, though there is no sound, and it's a little glitchy.
Overall it's a classic game and well worth the download to play again!!
Curt716 added this comment :
used to play this on my old 486 using Windows 3.1. wow makes me want to dust off that old machine and play some of these old classics. Good thing it still works!
Khabir added this comment :
