1 out of 5 eggsChessmaster 9000

Pros: Very slick chess game with good tutorials. Few people will play beyond it's capabilities. Very easy to find a computer opponent to match your skills.

Cons: Major runtime problems. Runs the cpu at 100% with the message "Program is not responding. Can take 3 to 5 minutes to start game, end game, exit program, view About, etc. While inside of the game response is normal - it just may take a very long time to change parameters or do something else. Sometimes Force Quit is required to exit the program.
