    Does it work with both versions of Windows 8 ( x86 / x64 ) ?
    Is it only in English or does it work with other languages too ?

    Chess should be named as Chess Titans; just like MS original :D

    Keep it up :)

    Hi.
    This version is only for W8 64 bits.
    If you want, I uploaded the files of Microsoft Games from Windows 7 SP1 x86 en-us.
    So you can also make a version for 32 bits version for W8.

    maya77.
    Exists the possibility to make a version with some languages ?
    I tried by another way, but had problems with pt-BR. So, I moved back to English.

    thanks.

    I'm actually glad they removed these games in Windows 8, I would have uninstalled them anyway. Saved me some time!
    I don't miss them at all.

    I have no x86 installed to try, but you can always use shortcuts in Metro Start or Classic Start to run games.
