Anyone want to play Chess?
« on: August 10, 2009, 03:30:42 AM »
Sup!
I've been playing chess seriously for about 7 years, I love the game and am willing to play with anyone who is up for some fun.

So what do you say, shall we? :D

Nobody *wants* to play chess ;)

I believe if you search for chess on this forum, you'll find quite a few people who have played each other, and you can probably PM them or something.

Do you know of any great chess apps online?

I hate Yahoo Chess and similar stuff, and for slightly more serious players I'd recommend FICS, the Free Internet Chess Server. Sign-up is free, you get ratings and such, and you can play through several interfaces, either browser-based or something like WinBoard. It even has a way to make up for lagging connections.

A commercial alternative is ICC, the Internet Chess Club. Similar to FICS, but you have to pay. As a perk, you get grandmasters and such hanging around there, and giving lessons and such.

Meh - I played on FB for a bit and a few other places but nobody could beat me.  ;)

Actually, I just got bored with it.

I used to play here as well.

You can challenge me.
Don't know if I will respond...like I said, I get bored with chess.
