Fritz remains the most popular chess program worldwide, a super-strong chess playing opponent developed by ChessBase, “the world’s leading chess software company” as noted in the Washington Post.
Whether you’re a beginner, club player or professional – Fritz 12 has everything that chess players could want: automatically adjusting playing strength, handicap and coaching functions, explanation of positions, colored danger warnings, openings statistics, automatic game analysis, trainings modules for openings, tactics, endgames, and a database of one million games. Read that list again!
And Fritz 12 continues to fascinate the chess world: this chess engine has beaten a reigning World Champion in the battle of man vs machine, and it has worked with World Champions as a clever training partner (Garry Kasparov: “I regularly analyze with Fritz”). Fritz 12 can even entertain you with fresh and humorous verbal comments.
Now Fritz 12 is even faster, as its completely redesigned ergonomic interface gives you instant access to all the most important functions. This means more comfort and clearer controls. Never before has it been so quick and easy to play with Fritz.

Fritz provides you with twelve hours of video lessons for every level of play, in which you’ll enjoy the instructive analysis of master games, and the discussion of clever openings traps, or deadly combinations to solve. The video material introduces you to world class Grandmasters like Alexei Shirov, Rustam Kasimdzhanov, Vladimir Kramnik, Vishy Anand, even chess legend Garry Kasparov. Even if you cannot play chess at the moment, Fritz 12 will teach you the rules of the games – within an hour you will be playing your first game of chess.
