The games:

Chess

-

Our Chess board is drawn with a classic 'Staunton' set, with an alternative set of 2D pieces. We think we've achieved unsurpassed quality. Authentic wood textures and great animations make Chess a pleasure to play!

Checkers

-

Checkers - also known as Draughts is the classic game where the aim is to take all your opponent's pieces by hopping over them. Reach the other side of the board, and your pieces are promoted to kings, enabling them to hop backwards as well as forwards. Checkers is a deceptively simple game, with lots of depth.

Shogi & Mini Shogi (Japanese Chess)

Shogi pieces have complex graphics and we've created something special and easy to read, with 2 styles of piece along with a unique 'western' chess set, making this great game accessible to all.

Coming Soon: Shogi CPU opponent!

Go

On the surface, Go is quite simple - but Go players know how complex this game really is. Our Go stones are rendered with beautiful detail, using a classic 'shell' design, and our boards offer game play all the way up to a full-sized 19x19 go-ban, for truly epic matches! Final territory status is shown with great visualization and full statistics. Territory is evaluated using the great open-source Fuego Go Engine, and you can play against it too! See http://fuego.sourceforge.net/ for information on Fuego.

XiangQi (Chinese Chess)

-

If Chess is a war, XiangQi is a battle! So goes the saying for this classic game. Offering unique challenges to current chess players, XiangQi is very addictive! Again we've provided a 'western' set, making this game easy to play for all.

Go...

:
For the convenience of the people who actually play Go, just say it uses Chinese scoring. I just lost a bunch of games because I thought it was using traditional scoring.

5/5 stars

Superb

:
I've been playing Boardz since v1.0. It has always been a very slick app, but it was missing what I felt were some crucial features such as AI opponents, rankings, and a chat feature.

The developer has really listened to feedback and has since incorporated all these features and a lot more. This latest release is a real treat.

Updating my previous review from 3 to 5 stars based on the quality of this release

4/5 stars

Good game

:
Except the internet playing process is a little bit slow. But it will be better if more people join it.
