Check out Alice Chess, our featured variant for June, 2024.

Since Java is no longer supported in most browsers, our Java applets probably will not run unless you install an extension that will run them. We recommend installing the CheerpJ Applet Runner extension on Edge, Chrome, or another Chromium browser. If your browser still does support Java, and you're not using this extension, make sure this site is listed in your Java exceptions list. You should find this in the Security tab of your Java control panel.


If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Unachess here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

Add and move pieces as you like. You cannot capture until you have placed your king. Pawns may go only on the first four ranks.
