Chess is probably one of the most popular computer games, and it’s a great candidate for the Kindle since it doesn’t rely on great graphics or video or even color — the pieces are, after all, black and white. It’s also a great fit considering the general slant of Kindle games so far: more cerebral, thinking games (like word games and Sudoku) rather than action / arcade types of games.
Chess is available now for your Kindle for $2.99 here:
There is also a steadily-growing list of Kindle games, including poker, blackjack, Scrabble, hangman, Monopoly, and more. Several of them are even free. There are even choose-your-own-adventure Kindle e-book / apps. You can find the current available games & apps here, along with lists of freebies, bestsellers, and highest-rated games:

I have a kindle paper white. How can I buy it? I tried to do it in Amazon but it’s impossible.
I love my kindle eink and I love chess, so I was quite excited to buy this game… but since I live in Argentina, Amazon won’t let me :’-(
Do you happen to know if there’s any other way I can buy it or if there’s any other chess game for e ink kindles??
Thanks for your post, btw! 🙂
I’m not sure what is available in your country, but if you log into Amazon on your Kindle or computer and search the Kindle Store for “chess,” it should show you anything that is available to you. Good luck!
