My niece is 7 almost 8 I got her this for Christmas and according to my brother she loves playing chess with it. She is getting much better at it. She will play a few rounds with her sister and her parents and then play the computer to get better.

I got this since my son is interested in Chess , it was cool at first but it’s not fast , it feels like a whole tutorial when playing it. Better for younger learners for all the reminders and talking and pausing it does . My son is 9, does so it just was taking too much time then playing it .

My kids absolutely loved playing this game. It combines physical moving pieces with an app. I was looking for a game where my oldest can practice their skills while introducing and teaching those skills to their younger siblings and this is it . You have to download the app onto your iPad . You can create multiple profiles depending on grade, playing experience and difficulty. There are avatars that they can choose to personalize their profile , so we were pleasantly pleased to see a brown princess as an option. Thank you for that. The game pieces are beautifully detailed. They are about 1-2inch in height and made of rubber. Super handy when a toddler takes and throws a piece. This can be a single or two-player interactive game. There is audio instructions for the very beginner. A small history lesson about Chess, step-by-step instructions about each individual piece and its moves and many gaming options. The interactive game gives hints on where to move your next piece. When a piece is taken/defeated , there is small clip/movie showing its demise. They had a kick watching it and the look of the characters. This is definitely a quality game and we are happy to add it to our collection. The only thing that I would add is an option for a carrying case . This is a game that I won’t mind screen time and it would be easy to take to grandma’s.

Use on a 10inch tablet anything smaller will make it difficult to play or even learn. My son had the hardest time trying to play. The HELP is useless so I had to return it.

I bought this for a Christmas present for my granddaughter and decided it would be better to wait to give it to her. After playing 1 time with it myself to see how it worked ( at it was ok, operatged just fine) I packed it back up and placed it in a closet. Now, I brought it back out on her visit here several months later. After trying it on 2 new kindles ( one I bought JUST for her to have for this game) the game WILL NOT play. I keep getting a "can't find server" error. Every other electgronic device in my home is working off my wi-fi. DO NOT BUY GAMES FROM THIS COMPANY. I am one who does not write negative reviews. I write 5 star reviews or none at all. This company puts out such shoddy product I can not sit still and allow others to buy this. I am so glad I did not give this as a Christmas gift. Such a disappointment. TACTO, do a better job.

The media could not be loaded. Its superb new way to play chess altogether... worth the money no doubt. Its interactive and guide beginners how to play and what can move and when. It's a new trendy way for kids to learn chess.

My son is learning chess and this was a good gift for him. He was excited to use it.
The media could not be loaded. Review from my daughter who had tried regular chess in the past and had given up - now she is playing with me after trying out TACTO Chess - totally worth it :) ---- Liked the Themes and wanted a few more. Liked talking characters - very engaging. Can be improved - sensitivity of the chess piece interaction with the screen.
