Review for Fritz Chess 17 Steam Edition (english and french)

1. English

With Fritz 17, in addition to the Fritz 17 engine, you get a completely new chess engine that was created with the help of a neural network based on the AlphaZero approach. There are also new exciting functions for creating and practicing opening repertoire. Based on LCZero technology, a neural network was trained with Grand Master games for over a year. The developers named the result Fat Fritz, which, however, needs a very powerful NVidea graphics card to achieve the full game strength.

Changed to positive since, I have to admit, slowly finding out content is there, just hidden behind a really unclear and buggy - for me - interface!

First I have to click “NO” on every prompt it pops up when I launch some of the modules or menus items (at least this is what’s happening on my system…), then it seems, so far, everything runs, their website connection too - playchess - only thing you are logged in as guest with sort of limited privilege, which is fair, tbh.

The Easy Game is what actually it says…easy with limited functionality…Then, if you want to access the full features, you can only via launching a game from the database or running the classic menu and then working from there ( as pointed out by Knusperzwieback in a reply to my review!)

I have a book that details many Chess variants including this one. Some of the moves and rules differ somewhat from what I found in other sources. Are multiple variants of this game actively played in Korea? The program, as it is, is good for those just getting introduced to Korean Chess. It is not a program that will satisfy stronger players.

Caïssa Board

Caïssa Board

The first graphical user interfaces for chess have appeared in the 1990s. Since then, they have considerably evolved but are still very complicated. Caïssa Board is a modern Chess GUI that is capable of interfacing with many chess engines while being tuned toward simplicity of use. It also provides tactical and strategic hints such as the possibility of forks or the controlled squares. The public domain Chess Engine Gull 3 is included with Caïssa Board so you can start playing and analyze games without delay.

Chessformer is a grid-based puzzle platformer with Chess pieces. Each of the pieces moves as expected, but they fall down after moving and can’t move again until they stop falling. Pieces also stack on top of each other which is key to solving most levels. The goal in each level is to capture the opposing king, who is lazy and never moves, so don’t worry about losing any pieces.

Super X Chess

Super X Chess

An excellent game for chess variant enthusiasts.

Game play: This game sports multiple game rules and a plethora of new fairy pieces while still keeping the core of the game intact. The tutorial and the AI make learning the new rules easy and the game offers a lot of potential for improving your strategic thinking. The AI can be adjusted from easy to challenging and either side can be handicapped material. The new scenario selector offers additional opportunities for new and exciting situations to explore. There is also a list that lets you review the games you have played which is another major plus.

Captures II

Captures II

Captures II, similar to Captures, is a chess-driven puzzle game. The objective is to capture the opponent’s pieces.

While the chess pieces move according to the regular rules, the board itself varies from level to level.

Also certain squares on the board might have “tile effects”.

Introduced in Captures; poison, curse, portal and random effect are present in Captures II as well. Two new tile effects, shield and snow are new additions.

New Feature: Trade Offer

A new concept called trade offer has been implemented. The cpu can offer to add new pieces to the board or remove them. After completing the trade offer world, the player is also able to make trade offers.

New Feature: Perks

Completing a world(a set of eight levels) now reward the player with a perk. Perks can make your pieces stronger against tile effects, let you create trade offer or alter the board with new tile effects. For those who are looking for a challenge, try to disable all perks and win all the levels to unlock gradmaster achievements.


-Drag & drop pieces.

-Click the restart button or press R key to restart the levels.


-All black pieces must be removed from the board to win the level.

-If a stalemate occurs, the level fails.

-If white loses all of their pieces the level fails. However, if white loses their last piece at the same time with the black, the level is completed.

-During a speed run, reseting a level counts as a mistake.


-Random tips will be shown through out the game.

-CPU likes to trade pieces, take advantage of it!
