|Questions On Server Chess?|
For questions about Serverchess, please use the Contact link below. Before logging onto the server to register and / or beginning play we strongly recommend that players new to server play please read "CCLA Server Rules", the "Server FAQ" and perhaps the "Webchess Tutorial". These pages are designed to answer many if not most of your questions and help make server chess a positive experience.
Absolutely no software to download and install. Log on to the iccf chess server using the ID# and Password we supply, select My Games, make your next move(s) on the graphical interface and log off. The server automatically notifies players via email when an opponent has moved, eliminating the need to log on / off the server looking for opponents' latest moves. Note: do not disable "email notification" in your player profile, but do select "remember ID and pasword" on the logon screen (the latter also requires "cookies" enabled in your browser.) Be sure to keep your email address up-to-date in your player profile (never displayed for public viewing.)
