BOOK OPENING TRAINER..... Alexandra the Great makes it easy for you to learn the same openings that world chess champions play! At the beginning of a game, you may choose to learn from 32 popular book openings.
PIECE TRAINING..... There are five special mini-games. The most famous and successful chess teachers in the world take their beginning students from the simple to the complex by having them play “mini games” of chess that concentrate on just one or more types of pieces. Even advanced players practice these basics, just as a concert pianist continues to practice the scales so they remain second nature. Like any great trainer, Alexandra will play you these special practice games.
RATINGS..... To view your rating, press OPTIONS until “RATE” is displayed. Your current rating appears on the display. To have your rating change, you must complete a rated game on a tournament or sudden death level.
