Chessmaster 5000The application's distribution is on CD-ROM. Uses stronger new chess engine introduced in Chessmaster 4000, and the engine is used for later versions. Chessmaster 5000 is a highly usable chess app, perhaps easier to use than later versions and avoids non-game related fluff features. Handily beats GNU Chess 5.0.7.Silver1.0.010
