ngboard enables you to:

  • play chess online at freechess
  • play offline against a computer
  • browse and analyse stored games

ngboard brings the following unique features:

  • Scalable Vector piece sets, using the popular SVG format.
  • Online Unicode text support.
  • Lag ping. ngboard monitors the connection continuously so any lag problems become apparent immediately.
  • Timesealplus included. This is a lag compensating program which adjusts your clock time so only your actual thinking time is considered. It is completely compatible with timeseal, and unlike timeseal it is freely distributable.
  • Improving on xboard, multiple boards!
