    I asked a question before about Open Chess, but I never got a reply. I need a good chess game with rookie levels for my rusty self. I've seen a few, and did searches on their titles, but no real good info on them.

    I would like to know what chess game you guys playing.

    this one isn't free, but it is far and above my favorite one. It does have a great feature in that it has "trainer" levels.

    Im a Chess Tiger fan too and agree that it provides opportunities for learning more about the game, e.g.

    * Hints (on a good next move)
    * Take back move
    * Teach Moves (for basic piece moves)
    * Trainer mode (forces computer to make moves of "human-level" stupidity)

    Chessmaster used to have a Palm version, which had good reviews, and lots of training features, but its Palm developers - Gameloft - seem to have abandoned Palm.

    Hiarcs is another option - I have it installed on my 680, along with Chess Tiger.

    It certainly shouldn't be viewed as a beginner chess app, since the PC version of it is right up there with Fritz and Shredder on the list of the top chess engines on the market right now. But it's configurable enough that you can dumb it down if you aren't a pro.

    Like most Palm software, you can download it and try it out for free, and pay for a real license if you like it.
