Types of Draws

There are 5 most common ways to tie the chess game.

Insufficient checkmating material

This type of draw happens when none of the two players can make a checkmate. Which means that none of the players have enough moves or pieces to get a checkmate.

Threefold repetition

It happens if a chess position is repeated three times in a single game by both players. It means that a piece makes the same move back and forth three times. When both the players make these repetitive moves, the game is draw.


It happens when one player has a safe king, but it has no moves left because it is surrounded by the opponent. However, it is surrounded in a way that the opponent cannot attack its king.

Draw by agreement

This happens when one player offers the other player to draw the game. It happens when a game is already reaching the draw condition. The opponent can either make their next move or they can accept the draw offer.

50 moves rule

This happens when both players play 50 moves without moving a pawn or capturing a piece, any player can claim a draw. This kind of draw is least likely to happen

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
