Do you remember the excitement of winning your very first game? We have collected conventional chess sets from different countries and created for you a choice of 29 sets of chessmen and 6 chess boards reproducing them on the board. It is very likely you will find the one which you used when you played 'offline'!

Create your own 'collection' of opponents who give you a very interesting game. Send them game invitations, accept their offers or watch their live games – you will never miss a good game of chess!

No Internet connection? No problem! You practice your chess skills playing against a computer (Coach). This is also a great way of trying some unfamiliar legacy chessmen.


Unlimited Play – an unlimited number of games to play with no ads, any prefered game clock and opponent level. Available for 7 or 30 days.

This app has all the warmth of a computer program. Gone is the ability to chat with opponents. It just feels clunky and cold compared to the original web based program. Please fix!
