It's small and convenient, I can just throw it in my purse. We have found it to be really user-friendly, and we like it a lot. In fact, at a recent visit, my grandfather liked it so much that we are ordering one for him! So that covers age 5 to 88 quite well. How many toys can please that big of an age difference? We love ours and will get one for Grandpa soon. Hope this helps!
It was cheap (actually purchased at a dollar store)
It remembers the game while it's off
I estimate its strategic play at around USCF 800
I estimate its tactical play at about USCF 1100
There are some chess rules it doesn't know related to draws
It suffers horribly from the horizon effect
The display can be very hard to see depending on light conditions
The pieces are hard to recognize. The knights take up half the square for example and look really squashed.
And the single worst problem, and it's unbelievably bad: Making your move is like pulling teeth. You make a move by pressing next/previous piece until it selects the piece you want to move, and then you press next/previous move and cycle through all the moves that piece can make. It takes a lot of pressing to enter a move. It's also random, too. So if a particular knight was the second piece hitting "move next piece" on one move, then next time you might think you can hit "move next piece" twice and get the knight. You'd be wrong. The order of the pieces and the order of the moves of each piece is random each time.
If you don't have a US Federation Chess rating and you don't mind the way one has to input moves, you might do okay with this. If you have a USCF rating, you will find its chess playing ability to be a joke.
And to answer the other reviewer regarding the instructions: they were placed inside the clam-shell cardboard insert. Very easy to accidentally miss and throw away/recycle.

Perfect for a 10 year old who loves to play but can't find partners. Keeps him as occupied as his DSi.Published on December 9, 2013 by Aunt Bee
I bought this for a time filler while I was going to be in the hospital. I've been using it at home to learn HOW to use it before I go. I enjoy it. Read morePublished on December 22, 2010 by Mr. James O. Phillips
