Magnus Carlsen launches Play Magnus

A few days ago (25th February 2014 to be precise) Magnus Carlsen launched his new chess app called Play Magnus with a corresponding website at This goes along with his new YouTube channel at where his first free training video has just been released.

The app is pretty clever and allows you to play against a Magnus computer with different age ratings. The whole idea is that you register, play and potentially win a chess to play against Magnus in a secret location next year. There are some free videos but you have to upgrade in the app to be allowed to enter the competition and you have to purchase some videos. Shame you have to upgrade to no ads to enter the competition but apart from that it’s very well done.

So what do you think and what age can you beat Magnus at?
