I just spotted today that chess is now available on the US Amazon Kindle Store. The product details indicate that it was released on 9 February 2011.
Might this be an indication that Kindle apps and games might be coming the UK Amazon Kindle Store sometime soon? I do hope so.

I’ve just come across this post about four years later. I never did get a game of chess on my Kindle before I sold it. 🙁
Just a quick warning about ordering things from Amazon Marketplace: make sure you read the details about how they will deliver your item.
I ordered something the other day, and I assumed like many of the other products that it said:
Delivery: In stock. Dispatched from United Kingdom. International delivery available.
But I didn’t read closely enough. I just skim read it. Like when you skim read jam labels, and fail to see that it’s actually been made of bees and hay.
It actually read:
Delivery: In stock. Dispatched from United Kingdom. Irrational delivery available.
Thankfully I live in the UK, so it didn’t affect me. But be warned!
