If you've ever played chess against the computer, you know how frustrating it can be. For beginners, it's a sure way to give up.
Not so with SparkChess. We've built the AI engine from the ground up, incorporating our secret sauce to give the AI personality and humanity. From the bumbling Cody to the friendly Claire to the aggressive Boris, you'll find an opponent that suits your style and is a pleasure to play with.
When I started playing SparkChess, I couldn't beat Cody. Now I'm winning against Claire and I'm the best in my class at chess!Maria N.
I learn how to attack more, especially from Claire and Boris. They thought me to be aggressive and never be scared. Thank you for inspiring me to be interested in playing chess.David Lewis
I'm almost 82 and have played chess since I was 12. Of all the sites, I prefer SparkChess, and Claire in particular. I find that level more human-like than most.Confad Conero
SparkChess has changed part of my life in a few ways. One major way is that it has brought my husband and I together to play a game online that requires thought and a fun competition. It has also helped me practice critical thinking skills and keep my mind sharp so that I can better teach my children these skills as well.Brenda Mertes
I was introduced for the first time to chess through my eighth grade socials teacher, I am now in grade ten, and I have been having a marvellous time.Jesse Davis

I am an avid user of your SparkChess and feel it is the best chess on the Internet!Adam Todes
I bought my subscription to help my son learn to play (he is 6 years old) but I am also enjoying playing myself.Rachel C.
SparkChess is a superbly presented and polished program. I have many of the commercial and free chess programs for windows and also for android/apple devices, and SparkChess is my new 'go to' favourite for a quick casual and fun game of chess. I think you have achieved your aim of making chess fun for a wide audience.Chris T.
Your chess board and pieces are the best by far (compared to any other program, including Fritz 12). Really amazing.Sherwin S.
