    Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 the latest versions of the Windows operating system from Microsoft have many good things about them, and many bad things. One such bad thing really sticks out, though – the omission of Microsoft Chess Titans.

    What would happen if Microsoft omitted Minesweeper, that simple but devastatingly hard strategy game, from future versions of Windows? Riots in the streets. But when Microsoft got rid of the newest to the “cheap windows game” from the latest versions of Windows, they all but got away with it clean. Thankfully, you are not left out in the cold. There is a way.

    To restore Chess Titans (or to install Chess Titans on your XP computer) simply download the installer below. All it is is a package that puts Chess Titan on your computer and adds a shortcut if you want. Nothing more, nothing less.


    Update: The version provided here before Jan 17, 2016 was an older version of Microsoft Chess Titans. I managed to get a copy of the most recent files, so that is the download available here. In the screenshot below, you can see the full list of options available in the most recent version of chess titans, including higher resolution textures, better difficulty granularity, and the option to choose which side to play when playing against the computer.
