Mini Chess

Mini Chess


With this app you are able to play chess variants on a smaller board. The variants basically have the same pieces and rules as standard chess, but the board is much smaller. Furthermore it is possible to adapt the difficulty of the computer.


As this are just chess variants, they do not cover all the advanced rules of standard chess. Therefore the game can't end in a tie and there is no such thing as en passant or castling. Additionally you have to change the rules to have the default winning condition of regular chess - mini chess usually ends by capturing the king.

GREAT! I've always enjoyed playing like this, faster, more fun and the best way to learn the game, its how Bobby Fischer wrote his book, and out of hundreds of chess apps this the only one I've seen of this style.Good Move!

Great app for small chess games Features a wide variety of games and modes for various board sizes against both, AI and local competition.

Great mini variations I love that the app has almost all the mini-chess variations that I can think of. Sometimes I just want the movement of the pieces to be more fluid-like. Other than that, it's great that it free, but I probably would have paid for the app.

Good Great bite sized variations of chess. Flaw... Game loses at a stalemate even when win by checkmate is selected. Also you can be forced into endless loops against the ai without a stalemate ever being called.
