Re: Aprende Con Rey, new chess engine for kids

Somewhat challenging for a non Spanish speaker to navigate, but the play once you get to the game seems to work fine. I'm going to pass this site on to a kid in our chess club that I know is struggling in his Spanish class, maybe it will help motivate him :)

Re: best server for computers to play variants currently?

lichess has a decent amount of variant games, I see 4 atomic games at the moment, 9 crazyhouse, and 3 suicide(antichess) games... but 0 bot games. They just don't seem to want to encourage anything other than stockfish :/ So repeating my question in hopes that the answer somehow changes, is there a...

Re: best server for computers to play variants currently?

So I've looked into lichess more, and I still don't see any way for bots to get games on there, so even if bot accounts exist they might as well not. So I am still looking for anywhere that bots can play chess variants and get at least a few games per day.

Is it too crazy to request to give it (to me or to public) to test it against Stockfish? :D
I'm too interested in Atomic Chess so it would be fun.
Or anyway any plans to ever release it?
I do not currently plan to give out copies, but I could change my mind someday.

Re: best server for computers to play variants currently?

It should be interesting to test out against stockfish. I think that mine is a bit more optimized for atomic than variant stockfish is, but the base engine for stockfish is of course stronger. Currently I'm going through and dealing with the bitrot from not working on it for so long, the last time I...

Re: best server for computers to play variants currently?

ok, read that. So bot accounts are allowed to play rated on lichess, but can't seek matches... people have to know that the bot exists from somewhere else and send it a match request. Am I understanding that right? I'm new to lichess so I may not be understanding how people get matches on there. I d...

Re: Ataxx

http://www.gamerz.net/pbmserv/ataxx.html is a play by email server for ataxx, the interface is kinda ugly but looks usable.
I would prefer an FICS style server though.

Re: Ataxx

That could be entertaining. But first there would need to be some server to connect to for playing the game. Anyone working on that? My first glance at it, I thought it would be a trivial game to solve, since the board is only 7x7, and it generally has less than 40 moves possible . But the frequency...
