Chess, the game of kings. however, we think that chess is actually a game of queens. not only because the queen is chess' most powerful piece but because more and more women get into the game. and for good reason, since they've proven to be exceptionally strong players. also, women love fair play, probably because they don't need to cheat in order to win. but even in case they lose, they do so with grace. like queens do. and so this app is more than a chess app, it's a statement and a call to action to all the girls and women out there: let's play #chess! *** when you download this app, you get two apps, an ios app (that shows up on your home screen) and an imessage app (that shows up only within imessage). the ios app includes the help topics and contact info and might later include other features as well. the imessage app is the one you need to play chess with a friend. main features + flip board + view move history (san) + view legal moves for each piece + en passant capture possible + queenside and kingside castling possible + resignation possible + draw offer possible + 50-move rule enforced + threefold repetition rule enforced + pawn promotion to queen, rook, bishop, knight + undo last move + replay game + move by drag & drop + export position to fen + export game to pgn included chess opening stickers + silican defense + french defense + ruy lopez opening + italian game + caro-kann defense + silican defense: closed + scandinavian defense + pirc defense + sicilian defense: alapin variation + alekhine defense + king's gambit + scotch game + queen's gambit + slav defense + king's indian defense + nimzo-indian defense + queen's indian defense + bogo-indian defense + gruenfeld defense + dutch defense + trompowsky attack + benko gambit + queen's pawn opening: london system + benoni defense: modern variation + catalan opening + reti opening + english opening + bird's opening + king's indian attack + hungarian opening + nimzowitsch-larsen attack + polish opening + grob opening start game 1) start or open a conversation with a friend in imessage 2) tap the app icon in the bottom bar 3) tap `new game` make move 1) tap the message bubble to view the game. 2) if you have the turn, select any of your pieces to see all legal moves for that piece. 3) tap any highlighted destination square to determine the move. 4) tap `move` to finish the move and send it to your opponent. 5) or drag & drop the piece to the destination square. make draw offer 1) tap the message bubble to view the game. 2) if you have the turn, determine a move first. 3) then tap `game` and select `send draw offer` 4) your opponent can accept or decline your offer. accept/decline draw offer 1) tap the message bubble to view the game. 2) when asked, tap `accept` to draw the game. 3) or tap `decline` and continue the game by making the next move. resign 1) tap the message bubble to view the game. 2) if you have the turn, tap `game` and select `send resignation` to end the game by resignation. symbols w: white player b: black player q: queenside castling ability still available k: kingside castling ability still available left number: half-move clock right number: full move number fen export 1) tap the message bubble to view the game. 2) tap `game` and select `share position (fen)` to share the current position via email or otherwise. pgn export 1) tap the message bubble to view the game. 2) tap `game` and select `share game (pgn)` to share the game via email or otherwise. uninstall uninstall the app on your home screen like any other app. the imessage app will be removed as well.
