Just purchased Hoyle Chess, which says this on the package: " Have fun learning move by move about Chess openings, middle game strategy and tactics, endgames, pinning, delivering check, attacking, protecting -- and much more!"

To me, this strongly implies some sort of interactive tutorial/instructive aspect to it. But all you get as far as I can tell is an adobe document with a few written paragraphs about the most basic of fundamentals. Could that really possibly be all you get, or am I totally missing something?

Plenty of hokey cartoon stuff, though! :(

Yes, that is a disappointment with this game. More is promised than delivered. What is worse, the game is ended when I am winning. The program decides there is a stalemate. I guess we are supposed to win in a certain number of moves. If we take longer they end the game. Not a good way to learn anything.

Hello again John,

I'm not sure I understand your feedback. Could you send me a private message with your email address? I would be more then happy to accept all the feedback you have to offer on this product but there are some things I still don't understand.

Thank you Drool
