‘Chess Against Computer’ game for kids gets a computer desk
A chess game for tweens could soon be coming to a computer.
The popular board game, which was popular in the early 2000s, was created by a team of researchers at the University of Waterloo.
A team of more than 40 researchers is now working to create a game that kids can play online with a computer screen.
“It’s a really fun game,” said Alex P. Harker, an associate professor of computer science at the university and a co-author of the study.
“You can’t do it with a gamepad, and it’s really easy to teach the rules.”
The researchers hope to launch a public beta version of the game by early next year, but Harking said it’s already been used in classrooms and even on a school computer.
He hopes that once it’s online, kids will start to play more.
“There are a lot of kids who play chess on their smartphones, and they play a lot more chess online than they do on a computer,” Harkers said.
“But for the kids who aren’t as good, we really want to make it so that they’re not playing alone.”
Picking a computer for a game is easy enough.
“All you have to do is pick a computer from a set of pre-built computers and the software that is available,” Harkin said.
The game has a grid of colored squares, which have different color values to represent moves that you can take.
The player moves forward by placing their pieces in squares that are adjacent to the squares they want to move into.
“Chess is really a two-dimensional game,” Hanks said.
If you want to see how quickly you can make a move, you can play by moving your pieces on the board.
“Once you’ve finished, you just move the pieces and the board goes away,” Hankers said, explaining that chess is about “winning, not winning.”
For the research team, this game was just a quick game to learn, but they plan to expand the concept further by using different chess pieces to build more complex chess games, or even a full-fledged game.
They’ve also made a video for the game.
“I think this is the future of chess,” Harks said.
Pushing the limits of technology “The chess game is something that is very challenging,” said Harkering, adding that he has no plans to make the game accessible to people who are not particularly tech-savvy.
“We’ve found a way to build this game in a way that is really intuitive and engaging for kids.”
The team is also working on a version of this game for smartphones, although Harkings said that while they’re still developing it, they are confident that they can make it “much more interesting for kids” on the iPhone.
They plan to also make the games available for tablets, although they’re focusing on the iPad first.
The team said they’re also working with a developer to create another chess game that is compatible with an Android tablet.
The researchers are also working to make a game called “chess for humans” available to parents through an app that would be made available to schools and libraries in the future.
The study also found that the game was easy to learn and fun to play.
“One of the big things that we found was that the kids really liked the games, and there was a lot less frustration than other chess games,” Hinker said.
