With this app you are able to play chess variants on a smaller board. The variants basically have the same pieces and rules as standard chess, but the board is much smaller. Furthermore it is possible to adapt the difficulty of the computer.

As this are just chess variants, they do not cover all the advanced rules of standard chess. Therefore the game can't end in a tie and there is no such thing as en passant or castling. Additionally you have to change the rules to have the default winning condition of regular chess - mini chess usually ends by capturing the king.

    I love that the app has almost all the mini-chess variations that I can think of. Sometimes I just want the movement of the pieces to be more fluid-like. Other than that, it's great that it free, but I probably would have paid for the app.

    Great bite sized variations of chess. Flaw... Game loses at a stalemate even when win by checkmate is selected. Also you can be forced into endless loops against the ai without a stalemate ever being called.

    Played only the simplest of the simplest settings, and enjoyed it a lot. Great way to gain insights into the basics of chess thinking. For when you do not have the time or the energy for a full 8x8 game.

    The idea of the game is really good, but why the game allows illegal moves (ex. moves in chess)? Fixing the rules will result 5 stars! update: the issue has been fixed. Thank you, developers!

    Wish there was the option to play full scale normal too.
