  4. hear me out – Chess variant, but it's shogi

  5. Did you guys just release the A0 paper preview by accident?

  6. how do you get to the page? i dont see a variants (beta) on mine even though i have beta on

  7. I played this chess variant called "Chess Evolved Online" it's pretty fun and free on Kongregate, it has hundreds of pieces and id recommend checking it out.

  8. For those desiring a third party version, Chess Evolved Online(or chess ultra pro max+ as i call it) is really epic, really intuitive. Such a shame about Flash though

  9. As someone who loves deckbuilding and doesn't like chess, and normally just dabbles in variants, Chess Evolved Online is pretty much what I was looking for. Wish it had more players though.

  10. In chaturanga i keep getting draws at random despite never accepting them wtf

  11. Will the variants be added to the mobile app?

  12. It doesn't show the 'play' button for me, does anyone know why?

  13. I can't start a match without a friend

  14. im stuck at the variants screen and cant join games wth. it just says server will go down soon for maintenance. been trying for like weeks

  15. For those of you who don’t see the play button, You Must have an Activated Account! I was also confused by this until I activated my account. As of now, I’d say it doesn’t cost anything to make or activate an account

  16. Two out of 10 stars would not recommend. How difficult can you make it we just want to play chess… you have to go to the web browser you can’t use the app and then there’s 90 million buttons none of which actually start a match…you just jump from lobby to lobby Now everybody’s out here scrolling YouTube trying to figure out how the hell you actually start the match And you give zero information😂 Congratulations you made a video that isn’t helpful at all
