Absolutely awesome app. You play timed chess 960 online. I know it doesn't make my chess better, but my favorite is the one minute game, where you add 1 second every turn you take. Sometimes i start sacrificing major pieces because my opponent is down to 3 seconds and can't make the moves fast enough. Super fun.

This is not real chess 960. My first position had the kings on the h file, which should never happen in 960. The king must be between the rooks to allow castling. Otherwise, the app itself worked okay for that one game. Wouldn't use the app again.

Its different from the classical position, its hard to make an opening move, but its more fun, and you need more practice games to improve the opening move, love it!! ❤️❤️❤️
