Step 1: Download Ichess (free)
Go to the app store on your ipod/ iphone and download ichess (free). Its free just incase you didn't know.
BTW there is also a paid version of ichess, so if you've already bought the paid version theres no need to download the free version.
Step 2: How to Use It
now i know what you're thinking how do I use this ichess thing to make me win at chess
well it's simple
First of all start it up. With the free version it wil ask you if you want to buy the paid version. After a while a white close icon will come at the bottom of the screen. click on it.
It will then show a chess board
click on settings ( the cogs at the bottom right corner)
now go on players at the bottom right of the screen
Now lets say you are playing as blacks. select the black player as computor, Move the difficulty level bar to Level 5 . Select the white player as Human.
Now click Done at the top right of the screen
Now you're ready to play
Step 3: Playing
to make it easier to understand VB means (virtual board - the one onthe ipod)
RB means (real board - the on in real life)
Remember on The RB you are blacks
double click on the screen. blacks should now be at the bottom of the VB
As you are playing as blacks, on the RB your opponent will go first
imagine they move the pawn in front of the king forward 2 spaces on the RB
on the VB replicate the move exactly using the white pieces
The blacks on your VB will automatically move a piece
now do the same move on the RB
keep doing this until you've won, easy
Step 4: Excuses, Excuses
Now that you're tapping away at your iphone during a chess game your opponent will probably be wondering what your doing
Here are ways to hide what your doing:
1. hide it under the table on your lap and keep your left hand (if you're right handed) constantly under the table so when they do their move pretend to be thinking when you're actually tapping away at your iphone
2. put your headphones on and leave it on the table but at an angle so they cant see what your doing. When its time to put in your opponents move on the VB they will probably think you are changing song or adjusting volume
3. Just go for it! Just do it, make sure they don't see the screen and hope they don't ask what your doing. If they do make up an excuse like im replying to an e-mail or something
Feel free to suggest other ways to do it
