very well ran site with tons of options for types of games to play and a wide range of customizations available for everything from your board and pieces, background, open games layout, and many more. I've used the site for years now and never had a bad experience. it's well maintained and is never lagging. I say bravo to the crew, keep it up! 🤜👏🤛

If you are into chess, even a little, you should try this. I never got into chess much, but I was recently invited by a friend, and things just clicked. Great training aids, videos, professional help, and chess puzzles. You can play people, or Bots, and almost everything can be customized to your style. I wish puzzles had an option to confirm/cancel moves. Games have the option but puzzles do not. On phone screens it is easy to drop a piece on the wrong square.

Must have for chess lovers or those just learning. But can be really aggravating because it locks you out or loses your state too easily. For example, you can't go back to analyze the puzzles you just did if you hit the back arrow. If you choose the wrong time limit for puzzles and try to redo it before doing any puzzles, it locks you out until the next day. Tried to give feedback but the in-app link for that went somewhere else.
