Test Drive Our New Site!

We need your feedback

I have recently started a new website called Chess Friends. The main features of this chess portal are a free chess server, a game arcade, and the functions everyone expects from an active Internet social network.

This site is in beta development and will continue in beta until I get the chess server dialed in, but that doesn't mean you cannot join in and have fun, so here is what I am going to do for you!!!

For a limited time anyone can test drive the site before deciding to signup. You will have all the privileges that all members recieve. Upload pics, blog, play the game arcade, post comments, join a forum, everything is turned on!

Below is the beta test account information.

Username: RickyD
Password: testdemo


All we ask is that you give us your feedback by creating a blog, comment on a forum topic, upload your favorite pics, and most importantly, INVITE A FRIEND (Use the beta memebers account, 'Invite' feature or create your own account and use your personl member account, 'Invite' feature.) to test drive our site, in other words, be an active member. Once you get a feel for the site sign up and create your own personal account.

New Features

Recently I have added a couple of features that are really cool. The first one is 1001 Brilliant Checkmates. Find the correct moves for 1001 brilliant checkmates, sacrifices, and more. Features drag and drop of opening moves.

The second feature which I know you will enjoy is 1001 Tactical Puzzles. View and play our chess database of 1001 Puzzles, Problems, and Tactics.

Have fun!!!
