EG Chess was the first true 3D Chess app experience to land on Google Play, and remains the top 3D Chess choice for purists and novices alike. It's no puzzle, just swipe to rotate the board, pinch anywhere on the board to zoom in, tap your pieces to move, capture, and win!
Complicated problems around online player vs player games are completely eliminated with a simple layout, beautifully clear board and pieces, online chat, and notifications of opponent's moves and when a game is joined so that you can focus on your chess strategy. HD quality 3D pieces and boards come in 4 chess sets- Wood, Stone, Marble and Classic (Staunton) to mix up the visuals of your games, and also keep kids interested in learning chess!
Feel free to play with your friends next to you on your phone or tablet via localized (local) play mode, or Bluetooth! Move up the leaderboard with ELO rankings against online players, live and in real-time, or at a slower pace when your opponent is offline, but still trading moves! If it's 3D Chess with no nonsense you are looking for, look no further. EG Chess is just a virtual step away from the table.
