Crowdsourcing Mornings: ChessUp | Level Up Your Chess Game

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

Imagine learning how to play chess from the best chess engine in the world. Picture sharpening and fine-tuning from the grandest of chess masters. Envision getting so good you can school your chess-enthusiast neighbor.  ChessUp is your chess coach, analyst and fierce opponent all rolled into one.

ChessUp allows for live training and analysis. In other words, learn as you play.  When you touch a piece, potential moves are highlighted in up to 3 different colors, each representing the quality of the move.

Sharpen your skills by playing against the board’s proprietary AI using adaptive training. As you level up, the computer gets tougher, but so does your built-in AI coach. So you can practice strategy and memorize different scenarios.

Connect with opponents online with instant matchmaking. ChessUp’s app matches you with people in your skill level so every game is fair, fun and challenging. Or play a ranked game, where the assist will be disabled… obviously.

As of March 18th, this project has raised $300,000 of their $30,000 goal. This project has 34 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $249, you will get one ChessUp.  For a pledge of $269, you will get one ChessUp Plus.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
