Quick Look: Chess Live! plays exactly like the actual game of chess. The game asks you to create a profile and requests that you provide your location (city/state) that is affiliated with your Roku account. Once your account information is completed, which also works for the Roku games Checkers Live! and Ships at War, you are ready to play.
The game offers several options where you can play locally, schedule a game or play against friends. You also have the option of choosing the level of competition (beginner to advanced). The game plays like the traditional board game with each player taking turns moving their pieces. The computer aids the players by showing where the selected piece can be moved to without actually moving it. Chess Live! tracks your stats at each level and allows you to review past games as well as resuming incomplete games for up to 14 days.
