Ever Wanted to Play Chess Against a Computer Online?
Here is a chance to play chess online against a basic chess computer. This computer chess program was written to run in flash, but it still gives a decent game. This is a free game, uses a 3d chess board and needs no download. Could it be the best free online chess program out there?
If you want a tougher game then try some of the other computer chess engine download links on this site. Almost any UCI chess engine from Jim Ablett’s page will give an incredibly strong game, or you could download the Crafty chess computer which is also available with its own graphical user interface.
If you are experiencing difficulty loading the game and playing chess online read this.
To play chess you must both install flash and then enable it your browser.
For example, in Chrome, after flash installation click on settings -> “advanced” and scroll down to “content settings” click this and then enable flash there.
You must complete BOTH downloading flash and enabling it in your browser for the chess game to work and be visible!
If after performing both actions the game still does not appear, then hard refresh your browser cache (control-F5 on Chrome).

Really fed up with playing computer now……..I thought I was ok but now I keep losing.
Did you try playing on beginner? This program is supposed to help you get better, so just just start at the lowest level and work your way up.
I used to think I was a reasonable player until I started playing on here.. Now I think I am rubbish as I keep losing! Does the computer like to put all us amateurs off the game completely? Surely it can give us a few more wins just to add encouragement?

why won’t this chess program work anymore?
Chess game still works fine, but some browsers are now really iffy with flash support. Try Firefox, or install and enable Flash on Chrome. Chrome does need it to ENABLED and not just installed though.
If you try Firefox may by it will work
A little too easy on the first two levels, too hard on the last.
