The Advanced Software Company (TASC) has provided unique and innovative products to chess players for over a decade. Famous for their easy to use interfaces, the software programs are powerful and comprehensive. The TASC software experts have created what we believe is the best chess database in the world: TASC Chess CD-ROM 2 Two Progams on 1 CD.

This new update includes the 5 steps of the Chess Tutorials and the Chessica for Windows. This latest version includes both MS DOS and Windows versions for the 5 Tutorial steps program and the Chessica works on Windows 3.X, '95, '98, NT4 and 2000-compatible machines. Both programs run directly from your CD.

TASC Interactive Chess Tutorials

Five steps from Beginner to Expert! Each step, a stand alone MS-DOS program or Windows, contains instructive text, examples, and hundreds of thematic positions to solve. Each position offers help in the form of hints and advice; the programs keep score for you, tracking your progress in each section. The chess tutorial comes in four languages (English, German, French and Dutch). The Program has a total of 2600 positions. No installation required; the tutorial runs directly from the CD.

STEP 1: Rules and Basic Skills
Great for children, beginners, and even experienced players interested in sharpening elementary skills.

STEP 2: Combinations and Opening Strategy
Slightly more advanced tactics and strategies, including some opening basics.

STEP 3: Defense and Planning
A guide to the tactics of defense and the basics of pawn structure and position based strategic planning.

STEP 4: King's Attack and Advanced Combos.
Fairly complex tactical attacking ideas to test even the stronger players' skills.

STEP 5: Tactics, Strategy, and Endgames
The final chapter for those who aspire to mastery.

TASC CHESSICA FOR WINDOWS The chess engine of Chessica is written by one of the best chess programmers in the world and has been optimized to evaluate an unbeaten number of positions per second. Chessica became World Computer Chess Champion in Hong Kong, May 1995 by defeating amongst others, Deep Blue, the chess program from IBM running on a super computer. The strength of the program (around ELO 2350) was also illustrated with a sweet victory over World Chess champion Gary Kasparov during a rapid chess tournament in Munich!

Chessica for Windows is in four languages (English, German, French and Dutch) and has unlimited number of installs; runs from the CD.

Chessica has been designed to suit the needs of the experienced chess player as well as the beginner. The Chessica screen layout is completely adjustable. All windows, including the chessboard, are resizable. Just open a second game on the screen for reference, remove clocks and other windows for a "bare" chessboard or have the maximum information on your screen. However the Chessica screen is arranged, everything remains clear and functional.

"The TASC Tutorial Steps are the best tools for improving your game" - Three-time US Chess Champion, GM Yasser Seirawan of Seattle Washington.
