Want to learn to play chess well in ten minutes a day, and have

fun doing it? Grandmaster Maurice Ashley, the most popular chess

commentator in the world, brings his award-winning teaching methods

to the iPhone.

Maurice’s unique approach isolates, teaches, and trains for the

individual skills that the game requires. Perfect your use of each piece,

one at a time, as you learn to visualize the chessboard… and forget

trying to learn a bunch of rules at once, only to make frustrating simple


Maurice narrates 20 lessons designed to give the beginner a strong

grounding in the basic rules and strategy about such topics as

Openings, the Center and Material Value. But the core of his special

method is the Skillbuilder section, where your abilities will grow so that

good moves will come almost automatically.

When you’re not taking lessons or working on your skills, you can

always test yourself in the puzzle section, with over 160 checkmate

puzzles ranging from Easy to Difficult. Or, if you’re up for a game,

there are three levels of play designed to give the growing learner

a chance to practice techniques against a reasonable opponent.


1. The Board

2. The Rook

3. The Bishop

4. The Queen

5. The Knight

6. The King

7. The Pawn

8. Check

9. Checkmate

10. Stalemate and Other Draws

11. The Center

12. The Opening

13. The Scholar’s Mate

14. Material Value

15. Trades

16. After the Opening

17. Basic Checkmate – Queen and Rook

18. Basic Checkmate – Queen and King

19. The TRIP Method of Defense

20. Passed Pawns

Hundreds of practice puzzles follow the lessons to help the learner

perfect each principle.

Skill Builders are fun activities in and of themselves. Beware of the Hard

level. Maurice designed these to be super-challenging, even for him!

1. Pawn Mower

2. Escape

3. Quibs

4. Wolf

5. Attack

6. Mate is Fate

7. Invisible Piece

8. Square Biz

9. Knight Concentration

A Help icon (?) gives an explanation at any point during an activity.
