Chessmaster 6000

Mattel’s Chessmaster 6000 reigns as king of the Mac chess world, and is a compelling way to learn the game and sharpen your skills. Beginners can start with the program’s tutorials, written by renowned teacher Bruce Pandolfini. And Chessmaster 6000’s powerful engine makes it a tough opponent for even advanced chess players. But if you want heavy analysis of moves and strategies, you won’t find it here. Chessmaster 6000 introduces rated play, a fun concept for those who reckon they’d beat Big Blue – you play games against computer personalities, and earn your own performance rating. Unfortunately, the only way to play with another human is to share a keyboard – cosy.
