Hello,

My apologies for not noticing this sooner! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

I take it you're referring to the mini games...

On the bottom of the Main menu, you'll see three icons. Click on the 'Fun' icon (the one on the right that looks like a knight with wheels). That icon will open into a small menu with other icons. Hover over each one, and a tooltip will be displayed. Click on the one that says 'Mini Games'.

You can then play 'Fork My Fruit', "Minefield Chess', 'Pathfinder', and 'Chain Reactions'.

Thanks for the correction! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have updated the Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition FAQ (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/4221052685/m/1051041336) to reflect this.

np khollister and i ENCOURAGED all to try the variants they are pretty fun.
"Echecs a la marseillaise" is hard http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif u can move two times per turn .
Its new in cm XI and i think its the most important feature for me.
But we can't play variants vs cpu http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
