Play Chess

Practice to become a grandmaster from anywhere using this third-party game. Take your skills online and compete with other players.

Another winner from Magmic Games (http://www.magmic.com) is Medieval Kings Chess 2. The graphics and quality of the Magmic games are impressive, and this one is no different. Medieval Kings Chess 2 lets you play chess on your BlackBerry from anywhere. Once you’ve honed your skills, you can take your game online to compete against other BlackBerry users.

The program can be installed from Magmic’s download page—just follow the same installation instructions as Texas Hold ‘Em King 2 [Hack #32] .

Start Playing

Like Magmic’s Texas Hold ‘Em King 2, this program comes with a seven-day trial. After the seven days have elapsed, you can purchase a key at Magmic’s web site for $9.95. To play an offline game against the AI that’s built into the software, choose New Game from the main menu. The Create New Game window appears (see Figure 3-4), and you can choose from various settings for your game. You can select the game mode (Player vs. CPU or Player vs. Player), piece color, your opponent’s skill level, and the piece set and board type.
