Chess Game Wanted for a PC

  wherty 17:18 26 Aug 2009

Can anyone suggest a good (preferably free) chess game programme for my XP PC please?

There are quite a few freeware chess games here click here though I know nothing about them and should be checked for malware before downloading.

There are a number of downloads available on the internet, some free and different levels. Try a Google search and perhaps Major Geeks, Snapfiles who are both reputable websites.

Not free, but a few weeks ago I bought The Times Chess from PC World for 97p BOGOF, and it's very good indeed. No frills, just does what it says on the box (ie Plays a good game of chess). I recommend it.

Yes,I got that one as well and I can certainly recommend it.

Have a search for "Arasan" chess. Free download when I first got it. I have yet to win against it!!

to everyone for their suggestions - now I need to decide which one to go for.

The only other one I have is Chessmaster 9000, which has all the bells and whistles, but I prefer the Times one to that.
