I played a whole lot of Battle Chess on my Commodore and I am still horrible at chess. I think I was too fixated on the animations and the Pythonesque antics to learn anything. I should have payed closer attention to how to play. Oh well. Battle Chess wass a computer game version of chess in which the chess pieces come to life and battle one another. It was released for the Commodore Amiga and subsequently on the 3DO, MS-DOS, Apple IIgs, Commodore 64, Amiga CDTV, CD32, Atari ST, Apple Macintosh, Acorn Archimedes, FM Towns, Windows 3.x and Nintendo Entertainment System..
I would of course later pick up Star Wars Chess.
