The Square Off app also lets you save your game so you can analyze and improve your strategy long after the victor has been crowned.
The Grand Kingdom Set has the unique ability to automatically reset the pieces on the board, as well as the ability to live stream professional chess matches in real time, right on your board. The board itself also includes a designated spot to store captured pieces.
