"As a beginner the lighted tiles for pieces in jeopardy really come in handy. As well as the option to number the tiles. Features I do not remember being on my Windows 7 chess game. The only complains is I wish it had a 1-10 difficulty option instead of only Easy, Med, Hard (Easy seems a little harder than it should be). Also, the 3d mode has pretty basic graphic quality. Not a big deal if you prefer 2d like I do."
