Chessmaster Grandmaster v1.02 new features:

  • a new mini-game: Chain Reaction
  • The theme of this game is to connect the movement paths of (at least) three pieces of the same kind. A number of random pieces is deployed on the board. The player has to move a piece in order to connect movement paths and/ or discover movement paths connections. If the player makes a chain by connecting pieces of the same kind, he receives points for each connected piece, then the connected pieces are removed from the board. If the player moves a piece without connecting or discovering a connection, more pieces are spawned on the board. Bonus points are awarded when the player connects more than 3 pieces.
  • 5 new chess sets (African, Futura, Humana, Insider, MinimaSteel);
  • 1 new skin (Metal);
