More about Pawn

Since the game was added to our catalog in 2004, it has obtained 25,834 downloads, and last week it gained 20 downloads.

About the download, Pawn is a not that heavy game that does not require as much storage than many games in the section PC games. It's very heavily used in Indonesia, United States, and Hungary.

Its current version is 2.79 and the latest update happened on 11/17/2004. Pawn is available for users with the operating system Windows 95 and prior versions, and you can download it in English.

Since there are many good chess programs available for the PC, Pawn was designed to be a light program especially for beginners.

There are two versions available, although both have the same chess engine. That is because some people still prefer the older version where the size of the window can be adjusted. The newer version has a graphical chessboard and more functionality but the window is not resizeable.

The strength of the program should be sufficient for most players. If you are an experienced player who seeks a challenge, you might want to have a look at the Links section for some stronger programs.

Most beginners get frustrated right from the beginning if they can't win a game every now and then. That's why the adjustable beginner's mode was introduced which lets the computer make mistakes.
