Go Get Your Chessmaster: The Art of Learning

chessds.jpgLove Chess? Own a DS? Then you might want to own this adorable piece of software. Some of the awesome features you can look forward to are:

• Tutorials: A comprehensive chess tutorial presented by Josh Waitzkin and based on his famous The Art of Learning course. • Mini-games: Six original mini-games to have fun learning the basics of chess playing. Examples: o “Minefield” - Use your chess pieces to locate and defuse the hidden mines. o “Chain Reaction” – Move a piece so that three pieces of the same kind are connected by their movement paths. • Chess puzzles: Classic chess puzzles with 2 modes, Time Challenge and Practice Puzzles. • Multiplayer: Multiplayer games for 2 players using the Nintendo DS wireless communications.

Ubisoft also mentions in the same release that Chessmaster: Grandmaster Edition is available for PC.

I'm sure it's an excellent Chess simulator, but check out the guy in the screenshot! He looks like his mum just died. Now, if I had a death in the family, the last thing I'd be doing is playing Chess.

Ah well, we all handle grief in different ways. For example, I eat celery. Lots of celery.
