  1. Not gonna lie, they had us in the first half

  2. nice one πŸ˜‰ you almost got me with that shit hahaha

  3. I really hope this was April Fools because I laughed out loud!!!

  4. I didn’t get the update and it’s been 24 hours

  5. Please actually update the app though to allow for variants and to allow for focus mode

  6. Thought it was real before I saw the date lol

  7. April Gambit: Fool's Variation, Hornswoggling Accepted, Troll Game

  8. Well done, boys. Got a chuckle or two out of this old curmudgeon!

  9. So far I have seen positive comments, but if this isn't an APRIL FOOL video, then I'm the first negative comment, I don't even like this update at all πŸ₯²

    1. Basically, a Rating based on fame?
    2. Keep swiping while losing your time? (bullet? blitz? hello?)
    3. You can play other games while it's not your move (okay great, now lose your focus and basically don't think for counterplay)

    Well this isn't actually negative, it's more likely just my opinion. If this is a separated app specifically for kids then sure it's a great game.
    I am pretty sure this is an APRIL FOOL video though, I am just baiting myself into it.πŸ˜†

  10. Let me get this straight, my rating is no longer based on how good I am at chess but how popular I am???

  11. The scary part is that some day this is actually gonna be the new reality

  12. Question, can it be togglable? As i like the original interface

  13. Is this an April fools joke or they really pandering to the basement dwellers that don’t know which bathroom to use?

  14. Bro I watched this on April 2nd and forgot yesterday was april fools for a sec

  15. I kept on frowning, and frowning some more, then my mouth was starting to hang open … and then I realized, "Oh, right. Forgot."

  16. with this new chess update you can play it like golf! The lower your score the lower your elo!

  17. I tried swiping and i couldn't, then went to google play store to check for updates lol


  19. no lagging every 2nd game? no 90% cheaters?
    wow, its a miracle!

  20. Finally good update. Thanks for taking care of the community.❀

  21. Rapid Players: Ehh not bad
    Bullet Players: WTF

  22. 🀣🀣🀣🀣 this is genius AF

  23. Me swiping to make a move and then realize the time went from 1 minute to 10 seconds while doing that.

  24. Imagine you playing bullet with swiping. πŸ’€
