Chess is even more popular since it can be played through the internet, Facebook apps & applications on mobile phones with an Android system, that's why FICGS (Free Internet Correspondence Games Server) created this application to bring chess faster to all players in the world, anyone now being able to start a chess game within seconds, without any registration.
Fast games are rated to enable players to find a similar level opponent, names being randomly generated unless you change it. This is a good way to train & improve while correspondence chess remains the best way to learn and understand openings & endgames deeper, with the help of databases & chess engines like the famous Stockfish, or Houdini, Komodo, the famous Fritz & Shredder from Chessbase, Hiarcs, Rybka & so on...
FICGS.com also offers other games apps like chess 960 or Go, that you may have heard about since Google Deepmind's AlphaGo beat the very best players from Korea & China, just before AlphaZero took on chess by beating Stockfish. Go (weiqi, baduk) is definitely one of the most challenging games for the human brain & artificial intelligences. Finally, if playing chess for fun is not enough anymore, you'll be welcome to play correspondence chess tournaments, cup & world championships with the strongest players.
Surely this free application will allow you to easily play fast chess games online, with a pseudonym and rating but without a real stake. No registration is required, you're only two clicks away to make your first move.
On the contrary, tournaments and competitions that take place on the FICGS.com website represent one of the biggest challenges of online chess. The FICGS chess world championship is a mixture of the old way the classic FIDE championship was played (in which the most famous players in the world competed, such as Bobby Fischer, Garry Kasparov, Magnus Carlsen or Vladimir Kramnik) and a several rounds tournament to give all registered players a chance to reach the final match.
Here the use of softwares, databases and the best chess programs & engines is allowed but it is certainly not enough to reach the top of rankings or to catch the crown of the champion. A lot of time, analysis and perseverance is needed since a championship can last almost 3 full years. The satisfaction of such an achievement is certainly worth all the rewards, so good luck and good games to everyone!
