The Chess Variant Pages

Check out Cylindrical Chess, our featured variant for March, 2023.

External Link: Ai Ai

Ai Ai is a Java-based general game playing engine based on Mogal (a GGP designed and developed by Stephen Tavener and Cameron Browne). Games can be hand-coded in Java (for efficiency), or assembled from blocks using a scripting language based on JSON. There is rudimentary support for turn-based online play.

As of June 2021, Ai Ai plays over 500 games, including over 100 games and variants from the chess family. The Ai Ai tag is used to identify games on the Chess variant pages that can be played with Ai Ai.

You’ll need Java 11 to run Ai Ai; instructions for installing java are on the download page.
