Hey friends

It's come up in the discord from time to time and so we banded together to make a thread where we can talk about and maybe even play chess together. We don't have to play on one site, but it appears most players are using Lichess (App/website)

How do I play chess with my BYOB friends?

i really like lichess. it's free / open source and has a lot of cool features. plus you don't need an account to play against someone (but you should get one!!)

you can challenge me and win at chess here: https://lichess.org/@/simplyzalp

e: correspondence is usually best for me since I'm playing moves during work, but let me know if you want a timed game and I'm up for that too!

after each game the winning king smashes two beers together and gives a stone cold stunner to the loser

Well yeah, but honestly..



I only know Lichess myself, which I like, but I'm happy with whatever fancy tool we want to settle on here!
I used to be really good at chess, but then I started to play more often in bars with people who got increasingly worse while getting increasingly drunk, so I'm probably pretty bad now

Anyways let's play I challenge you all

chess is a fickle beast, though after that one blunder on vanisher's part i did my best to keep almost giving the game back over to him for the next 20 or so moves lol
