Good but not good= excellent!!!!
It’s just like playing normal chess with all the fun taken out😭there need to be more fun stuff k👍🏾 **edit below** I want to apologize for this review. My daughter plays this at her school for chess team practice. Her school had too many students sign up for the team so, after two weeks of after school practice and two mini tournaments, they told us parents that in order to compete in the district competition they would have to choose only 10 students to remain on the team and cut the rest of them. They also said they would make the decision based on the tournament results AS WELL as the amount of time each student had used ChessKid to practice (at school and at home). This info was shared the day she wrote this review. And because she was not practicing enough and had to spend a nice chunk of her Sunday playing ChessKid (so she would have a better chance of staying on the team), she wrote a rude review. She willingly chose to practice that day, btw. She begged to join the team in the first place. So I know she enjoys playing ChessKid, but only when she wants to. I apologize for her nasty attitude and have changed the star count. This is an excellent app, and I’m sorry about her… 5⭐️

The “kids” app isn’t just for kids!!
I am a 41 yr-old woman who has wanted to learn chess her entire life. I would always watch others play enviously. I’ve downloaded SO many other “teaching” apps, & w/each one I felt worse & worse. I felt so stupid bc I just could not get the hang of the game…until I tried this one. This app may be geared towards children, but it does an amazing job at breaking things down in steps, then gradually immersing you in the game, so much so that you REALLY start to understand the gameplay. I thought I was doomed bc I’m terrible at math & stategy, but the coaching system gives you hints so that you truly start to get the hang of movement. I just won my FIRST EVER game & I actually screamed in triumph 😂😂😂 I ❤️this app-it’s amazing. Guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!!!

This is the best online chess I've ever seen! ( And the only one)
This is such a great game! When I'm driving in the car ( in the back seat I'm 9) and I want to play chess this is a perfect game to play! The only trouble I have is when you want to play against a human being it's always me against me... so I can say I want Black to win! And it will win. Or I want white to win! And it will win. That's the only thing I want fixed. Other than that THIS GAME IS AWESOME! I advise you to download this game it’s awesome I mean really if you don’t download this I’m gonna go crazy! PLEEEAAASE download this... thanks... 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐️💫 that many stars. My name:_________________

Great game but needs work...
I love this game and I just started and I just got the gold membership and it’s so much fun! But a few of my games I was about to win and my opponent just finished there move and says it’s my turn but then all a sudden I won’t be allowed to to move my piece so I usually use the call a draw button and it works again but then they accept and I was about to win but it was a draw. So if you can fix that it would be great thanks so much! P.S a cool feature you can maybe do is let the players on the match decide there color and talk in the game but NO bullying or trash talking. I’m about to turn 12 and I really think you should play this kid chess game!

Seems great but has major flaws
Downloaded the app for my 5 year old. He has the kid account and I’ve created a parent account. It would be great if I could set up another parent account so that my husband can play a game against our son too. Also, I received a message that if I upgrade my (son’s) account, the upgrade would also be reflected on the parents account. So I upgraded my parent account thinking the upgrade would also impact my son’s account, but to no avail! Lastly, my husband created a parent account in hopes of finding my son’s account... he found him but it doesn’t offer the capability to play with him.

Chess kids
Chess Kids is a fun app that allows children to learn about chess. You can play games with a bot, or do lessons on your homepage. You can collect trophies, and spin the daily star wheel. It even has a mode that teaches you how to play chess. All in all I’d say it’s a pretty good game. I only have one question, why isn’t there a section on castling in the tutorial. I would definitely like this to change. 🤗🤗👍🏻😼😼🤜🏻🤛🏻✌🏻👌🏻🌈🥧🍭🍭🍭🍡🍬🍬🍬🥡🥢♟️♟️♟️♟️♟️♟️ 🎢🌠🌠🌠🌠🔮🛍️🛍️🛍️🩷❤️🧡💛💚🩵💙💜🖤🩶🤍🤎💔❤️‍🔥❤️‍🩹❣️💕💞💓💗💖💘💝💟☮️✝️☪️🕉️☸️🪯✡️🔯🕎☯️☦️🛐⛎♈️♉️♊️♋️♌️♍️♎️♏️♐️♑️♒️♓️🆔⚛️🉑☢️☣️📴📳🈶🈚️🈸🈺🈷️✴️🆚💮🉐㊙️㊗️🈴🈵🈹🈲🅰️🅱️🆎🆑🅾️🆘❌⭕️🛑

It is awesome
It’s really good for kids who need to learn I suggested to anyone who would like chess it’s for girls and boys and it’s for adults helpful to learn mindful skills inside of the game. There is no ads. I repeat no ads it’s not kind of games with like oh you play this game to win a prize it’s nothing like that you have to learn and there’s lessons puzzles, and everything is about chess, I suggested a lot it’s really good. The only reason why I gave it a four star was because it’s just not the best it’s just like it’s super hard to get through the lesson sometimes and you can’t pass the lesson easily so I always have to jot it down.

Extremely Helpful
Chess Kids is just better. It has multiple lessons that bring your strategy to your full potential. You can face many bots or a realistic version of all the chess masters. Puzzles are included to test your ability to find skewers, checks, mates, and many other things. You can face chess players from around the world in matches and tournaments. Fun clubs are available to improve your skills. If anything, you should use this chess app. I use it and I have won many tournaments in real life.

Glitches out
It’s a good game overall. It teaches you tactics and let’s you play against people online. The thing is, it glitches out a bunch in matches. I was in a tournament while in fourth place, fighting for third, and I was even winning by far. He might as well have resigned, and after all he had left was a rook and two pawns, the game glitched. It suddenly switched the timer so it was counting on my side, but it wasn’t my turn. I then tried moving a piece, and I couldn’t move it. Then when I tried to go back in the match to see what happened, it completely exited me out of the game, and I didn’t get a ranking at all in the tournament. It’s a great game, but developers, please fix this glitch.

Using this website and app for gifted students
Our gifted program 2nd through 6th grades, in our medium sized city is using this program. I have the students use the app on their devices if they have access. Many use the website only, or in addition to their app. This app is amazing. The students love to play me in slow chess. They play each other on the fast games, and have grown in their knowledge an skills as chess players. We hope to form chess clubs at our schools and maybe city-wide at some point, and Chess Kid will be a part of our program.

ChessKid should not have menbers
This is a great game for children to play, they have levels that can be chosen easy and hard. I loved ChessKid because my skill and opportunity got me to the bullet point, unlike most some games, they make it so hard to understand what it is like to have a chess partner in online or so-called robots like QWERTY or things like that. But at when you have to sign up to be a member of ChessKid, you have to lots of thing as if cleaning the whole world. All in all this is a fun games to play.

Leaned a lot, very glitchy
My 8yo has learned a TON watching the videos and playing bots over the last two years. He’s the best player in our town. However I’ve spent more time, and I mean a LOT more time trying to FIX the app when playing slow chess, than playing. We try so hard to allow him to play slow chess remotely with his dad while he’s traveling and it always malfunctions somehow. Logs into the wrong player, doesn’t update a move, freezes. It really interrupts the enthusiasm and makes playing chess on the app feel like a pain. Great for kids for learning, bad for remote play in my experience.

Great game for beginners AND pros
I have been playing ChessKid for almost 3 years now, and I will say it has made me a better player. You can either choose to play Bots Who you can pick based on your level of skill, or you can play verse another kid/parent if you are up for that challenge. not to mention, they have several other fun things, such as chess puzzles, lessons, and daily tournaments. chessKid is easily my favorite chess app, and I highly suggest it to anyone who is interested in the game of chess. ♟️

Nice app but chess becomes lil less fun everyday and idk why but sometimes and the game I played before reviewing is that this happened 2 times in a game the opponent makes a blunder and I’m in a winning position and when that happens all the dang sudden I lose on time idk if it’s actual time or if they made a blunder just so they could hack me So Yeah I Hope It’s Hack Or IDK what else to say :T Edit:This happened a 3rd time but I have screen shots so Yeah I lose on time so yeah I know what happened now but also 💀

It could be better
This app has everything to be amazing, but yet it lack some features that would make it so much better. If kids could search for their friends who have also signed up it would motivate them to challenge each other and play more. Even in the Gold membership this is not possible. Also, the latest update brought some kind of bug, the audio of the videos are completely muted. My kid has learned so much from watching them, and now he is annoyed that he can’t hear anything. I wish the developers would look into the “search for friends” feature.

Always a bad experience
I don’t understand how this app has such good ratings, I’ve never had a good experience with it. Last time I tried a year ago or so I couldn’t castle queen side, trying would crash the app. Fine, I won’t make that move I was just playing with my daughter so no big deal. Then buttons stopped working and I gave up. Just now I reinstalled it. The interface looks better. I immediately got a notification when my daughter invited me to a game. Things were looking better... until I couldn’t accept the game. Or decline it. None of the buttons to interact with the game worked and we couldn’t play. This app has great ideas and potential but cannot seem to get the most basic functionality working.

This game is perfect
Why this game is perfect is because if you don't know how to play or you forget how to move a peice you can go to a part of the game and there is a whole section on where you can get that info. Another reason is that when your playing you can play against bots and when you play against bots there is a hint button on how to get check. This game is perfect for begginers who don't know many things about chess.

App is amazing but
Videos are silent if the phone ringer is off. Why?? Accessibility feature request: we are paying for an account for my daughter who just turned 5. She adores the app but she only reads at the 6 or 7 year old level and cannot read the text on all the king level lessons. Can you either make this text accessible to the native screen reading functionality or add a button to read the lesson text aloud?

It is the best kid chess app
I really like this app. I don’t have to worry about privacy, and the puzzles are fun even when you don’t know what the answer is. The lessons although sometimes tough their fun. The videos are always fun to watch. I was watching the latest beat funmastermike when someone did something, and he still didn’t say names or what they did. This is only a few reasons I like this app.

Disconnected Games Ruin Ratings
I am a parent with my son signed up as one of my Kids. We’ve tried several times to start a Fast Game, but each time the challenge was accepted, the app disconnected me with the “None of your kids are available” pop-up even though I’m literally looking at the game open on my son’s screen with the timer counting down until I “lose” the game due to “abandonment”. The “None of your kids are available” feature needs to be corrected because this ruins the ability to play online games with my son and/or starts games and forcing my login to “abandon” them and ruin in-game ratings with invalid win-loss stats. I will update my review and star-rating when this is corrected in the app.

Queens Queens Queens
So this app is great, no bugs as far as I know. The only bad part is that you have to have membership to play all the bots. Good thing is: You don’t need the membership to play. I just find this app helpful as an endless “Get as many pawns as possible to the other side of the board” game. For some odd reason, I just like getting queens. Anyway, I totally recommend this app for Kids. Happy playing! (Remember to #Vote-eat-pet!)

Chess kids…
Basically chess kids is good but… I have to have this gold thingy to be able to like watch videos, which in my opinion is unfair. Like I think we should be able to watch chess videos without being a gold member. I understand how you need to be a gold member to get certain avatars. But chess kid IS SO FUN not counting the gold membership. If you don’t have any people to play with you can play against a bot. You can pick your bots level it can be beginner, intermediate, advanced and I’m just naming a few!

Chess game
There a lot of chess games you could try but so far this has been the best starting with a variety of different modes making it very customizable slow chess if you want to play a relaxing game against a kid to test your skills and puzzles for a bit of extra fun overall i think this would be a great app for your children and a good way to learn.

Problems with free version
This app says that kids can do 1 free lesson and 3 free puzzles every day. Every time we open the app, no lessons are or puzzles are available. Just the message asking kids to ask their parents to pay for the gold subscription. It’s misleading (or a really annoying bug) and I am less inclined to pay for it either way.

Why limit kids?
I like ChessKid because of interactive features, but they limit everything to point of anyone just getting bored easily. You only get 3 puzzles per day. And apparently there’s an exact amount for how many lessons there are for everyone. I get that ChessKid needs funds to upgrade and stuff, but do you really have to limit kids to 3 puzzles a day? Please comment if you read this and agree.

Hello, ChessKid is a great chess learning app! In fact, the only downside is I lose too much rating points when I lose, even when my opponent is higher than me. Also, just a suggestion, you could allow full-screen on mobile devices, like an iPhone and iPad. Plus I couldn’t send friend requests on mobile devices, like iPhone and iPad. If you take my recommendations, ChessKid could be a lot more fun.

Lacking important features, but otherwise fun
I really wish that there were a way to undo a move, especially during human versus human play with my child… It would also be cool if you could turn off the “board flip” graphic, as it is distracting to young players, and just play as on a stationary board.

Fix something please
Overall it’s pretty good. I’m a beginner player; however I already know how to move the pieces and I want to jump straight to the techniques. I wish though it had a test or something so I don’t have to sit through how to move the pieces again. Could you add that? If you are reading this please know this is a good game! I haven’t seen any issues so far:)

Please fix
The app is OK. Convenient to use for practice on the go. There’s a few glitches that need to be fixed though. One example is that stars have never counted for the streaks. They get added on and are immediately taken back off. Please compensate for these when it is finally fixed. Thank you. And yes, we have already been in contact with the support team for a long time now. PLEASE fix the stars not counting glitch.

It’s so promising
There’s so much to like about this app, but the crux of the deal for me is I downloaded it to play chess with my kids. The app won’t respond to challenges (as in, there’s a large icon asking me to accept or deny a challenge, but it doesn’t respond to touch while everything else will), there’s no contact info for support within the app, and when I *was* able to play with my kids the app would never notify either of us that a turn had occurred. For what it’s worth I use the “adult” chess app as well and I have no issues at all.

Can’t do anything without membership
Well over all, good app but now I can’t do any thing on this app because I don’t have gold membership. It only lets me watch 25 seconds of each video before it stops me and says you need gold membership. Without membership, no vids, no lessons and only three bots. 7 dollars a month for gold membership is to much and without membership you can do almost nothing

GREAT game, but annoys me
I LOVE ChessKid SO MUCH!!! But, I feel like they make the robots seem like they know best because say if the king was in danger and you were playing against a human looking robot, and your king was in danger, the app would make you move the king even though, say, your bishop could’ve blocked the queen, sure the bishop can get eaten, but like, just let US take our chances and make our OWN moves!!!! That really annoys me. But overall it’s a great game.

Decent single player for kids but software is very poor
Chess kids has a painful interface and a lot of bugs. I bought a gold membership for my son and I but we are unable to play games together as he always shows as unavailable in the interface even when I’ve verified that he’s logged in. The single player engine is good for kids but with such a buggy multiplayer experience I can’t recommend this app.

Why I love chesskid…
I love chess kids because it’s a fun way to play today and I like that you don’t have to play against people, you can play against bots. I like the puzzles in chess kid too. Somethings I don’t like about Chesskid… I don’t like that you can only do six free lessons, and that you have to get gold to do ALL The other ones. I also don’t like that you can only play against a few bots until you get gold.

This game is super fun. It teaches you how to play chess, and then you can vs another person, or vs a robot, and then pick how hard you want the game to be. You can also watch videos, and much more. Also, you might look at the title: ChessKid. But really, it’s for all ages. And best of all, no adds!!!! I really like this game 😊

Seems cool but lacks representation
My daughter is enjoying the app but we noticed that under the personalities that you can choose to play against there is only 1 woman and 0 black or brown women represented as avatars. This signals that the developers lack awareness of how diverse representation can benefit their product. I hope they do better in this area because it honestly makes me want to delete the app and find something else that values women and people of color.
