    maybe companion play? have two NFC connected tabs play each other? or Wi-Fi direct or bluetooth would be nice. and any 3D boards/pieces?

      sure, companion play (local multiplayer) is definitely on the list along with online multiplayer FICS server. 3d board/chess pieces is what I would like to do but usually chess players don’t like that 🙂 but anyways, once I release this first version will see what reveiwers say 🙂 Thanks for leaving a comment.

    Sure, local multiplayer based on AllJoyn will be straight forward to implement however I cannot release the app until AllJoyn is compiled for x64, x86, ARM. By the way the current x64 release of AllJoyn also fails Windows 8 certification. Please release a certifiable AllJoyn SDK soon 🙂
