Lucaschess is a GREAT free chess program
First of all, here is a link: http://lucaschess.host22.com/
I've downloaded about every free chess program there is. I have found many of them. I read of this one on the forum on this site and checked it out. I'm a lazy blogger, so here are some features I see in the menu:
- Can play against the engine and many different levels.
- Has tactics built in
- Many "Mate" tactics (move in 1, 2, 3, 4, etc)
- Basically there are a lot of built in training programs for free
- A great Tutor. When you play a game, if you make a move that isn't good, then the program pops up 2 windows. One shows you the move on a board you should make and the other the move you are making. You can go forward on each board to move through the analysis.
Check it out.
