To find opponents and to play chess by e-mail
Support and discussion forum
Advantages compared to the existing sites
- Using only e-mails allows for quicker read and reply, even with an high-speed internet connection.
- Playing by e-mail is cheaper for people who don't have an unlimited connexion at fixed price.
- The choice of the opponent takes into account the number of games in progress, and makes it possible to find more quickly an adversary wishing to play.
- First moves are automatically and equitably given.
- By avoiding a too heavy load, the site can remain free, quick enough and without advertisements.
- The use of ChessComment makes it possible to write notes and the game-plan while playing, and to easily exchange analysis between players. It is not mandatory.
- 4 languages are available, possibily more if you are volunteer to translate a few hundred lines from french.
