Gameloft said that the game can be enjoyed by both beginners and advance players.

The A.I. is terrific but the tutorial games are limited on telling the player where should their chess or backgammon pieces should go. There is also a quiz mode that will also help players learn some of the rules and tips in the game. Players can also compete with their friends that has an iPhone or iPod Touch in a two player mode and enjoy past tournament games in a Classic Mode.

The game also uses a multi-touch interface-you can click and move the pieces around. The addition of the game of backgammon is a good diversion and it improves the value of the Chess Classics. It offers the same capabilities that can be found in the Chess Classics game like the 2 player mode and different activities that can help you test your skills in backgammon.
