Playing Chess

CHECKMATE, oh how I love to hear those words, or at least when I'm the one saying them. Computers aren't just for business proposals, worksheets, and documents. We all know that there are thousands of games available for computer systems, but one of the most challenging games in the world is available as soon as you load Panther. Chess is available in the Applications folder and ready for you to play on your own screen. Panther has beefed up the program, giving you more options, and even making it quite a challenge to those who have moved beyond the beginner stage.

Play Chess

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the Chess icon.

Click and drag a piece. For example, the white King's pawn at E2 to E4.

Black responds with a move.

Click the Moves menu, and then click Take Back Move, Show Hint, or Show Last Move.

Click the Chess menu, and then click Preferences. Select from the following options:

  • Click the Board pop-up to select a new playing surface.

  • Click the Pieces pop-up to select different playing pieces.

  • Select the Speech check boxes to use voice recognition software to call your moves.

  • Drag the Computer Plays slider to increase or decrease the computer's playing skills.

  • Select the Show Move In Title check box to display the current move in the Title bar.

Click the Close button.

Click the Game menu, and then select a game option, such as New Game or Save Game.

Quit Chess.
