Hi I love your chess game. Very challenging. I have a question that is frustrating me...sometimes not long after I start the game, while many pieces are still on the board I am undecided about my next move. So I ask the computer for a suggestion and let it play both sides for a couple of moves in order to learn the best move. Often it takes me to a 3 fold rep. Does this mean that is the only outcome? I have a screenshot of the game I can send or an SMS if that will help of my last game that ended like this. Thanks.

Thanks

Thanks both for your kind comments. The build-in engine is not very advanced, and often simply takes the draw by repetition even if many other possibilities are still open. Improving the build-in engine is still on my todo list, but at low priority since third party engines can be imported.

Many other chess applications on Android are now supporting share options too. See a recent posting on this topic (
