"'When I first saw it, I said, 'Well, this is just trivial.' says Games senior editor Burt Hochberg. 'I come from a chess background. I'm a bit of a snob about it, to be frank. I said, 'Why do people keep meddling with chess, the greatest game ever invented?'
“Then Hochberg tried QuickChess, and has since recommended it on "CBS This Morning" as one of six hot games of the season, especially for beginners. 'It is a way of getting your toes wet in the game without being overwhelmed,' says Hochberg, who was surprised to also discover that QuickChess is 'quite an interesting game even for an experienced player.'”
