I love a good game of Chess, but what I would love even more is a Chess application that has the following features:

  • Has a TUI rather than a GUI and is fully used from the command-line

  • Has multiplayer capabilities (something like P2P)

  • Is still being maintained (preferable)

So is there something like this that would be compatible with Ubuntu GNOME 15.04? Preferably something from the repositories.


Command-line-chess does not have multiplayer capacities but can still interest you :

sudo apt-get install python3-pip
pip3 install cl-chess
