My favorite chess game in Linux though is Pouet Chess. The computer fights quite effectively in this. Depending on the setting of difficulty, the system can take anywhere from two to ninety seconds to make a decision on a move.
Playing against pouet Chess is harder than other game or person that I have ever played. I personally recommend this game for anyone really interested in chess.
The board and pieces are also beautifully designed, more so than in any of the other chess games, including the two that refuse to run on my current system.
I will probably add more to this review later, but for now I will just add a few pictures. Have fun everyone.
Current stable version is : 0.2.0
PouetChess is an innovating and open-source chess game.
