He who owned the original disk back in the day ,was a god.It really was the beginning of chess era ,but it was a game made with passion and intelligent ideas never seen at that time.There were moves written on paper by the gamers ,and then shared between each other to a cup of coffee.There were matches between people so intense ,that everyone was shocked in very good way.Glad this piece of history never died. Abandonware thank you from deepest heart.

Best chess program ever. Why is the best? Because there is something in this interface... I play on Level 3 (60/10) and it kicks my ass hard!

My childhood comes back!!! I loved this game!!! It was my first chess game in a 286 with hercules amber monitor!
One nice feature is the opening tree.
When it started, there was an audio from the buzzer saying "I am the chessmaster, wanna play?"
