Resurrect PF Chess?

  1. Jul 7, 2013 #1
    There used to be a chess feature on this site. Unfortunately, this existed and was eliminated well before I became a member. I enjoy playing chess and from what I understand, so do many other members here. Is there a possibility of bringing back PF chess? I think it would be a great way for members to have fun and interact with each other.

    I'd love nothing more than to be beaten by WBN(And anyone else that knows the basic rules) at a nice game of chess.

    Chess was interesting, but I uninstalled it after finding some security concerns.

    Ah, that makes sense. It's too bad to hear that this is why chess wasn't/isn't possible, but security comes first I suppose.

    You could start a PF chess.com group and then make a thread about it.

    That is a great idea! The only problem is that you need premium membership to create a group, which I don't have. If someone else does have premium membership and would like to create such a group, that would be great.

    There is nice feat on chess.com called "vote chess":

    Two groups play a game and the teams, consisting of members of the respective groups, discuss and vote on the moves to be made.
    That's good fun.
