Description official description
Kasparov's Gambit was Electronic Arts' attempt to enter the niche chess market dominated by Chessmaster 3000 and Battlechess. It has a number of pluses including being based off a competition-winning chess engine, a database of 500 games, an SVGA isometric chessboard and the license of the world's reigning chess champion, Garry Kasparov. Garry Kasparov pops up in video windows during play to give advice such as: "Your Queen is in Jeopardy", "Watch your Rook" and other context sensitive kibitzing. This was EA's first use of windowed video.
