Arena is compatible to UCI and Winboard protocols. Furthermore, Arena supports Chess960, DGT electronic chess boards & DGT clocks and much more.
  • Lucas Chess
    The program has 52 engines prepared to play from the start, and with very different levels, from 0 to 3300 elo. This list of engines is not closed and you can add other ones with the only limitation that they use the UCI protocol. The game can be set, limiting the depth of analysis of the motor or the time used to think, or by modifying the way in which it decides. You can also choose the opening, or start in a certain position, or that the engine uses a book of openings or more or less aid. Younger children will be able to begin their apprenticeship with special engines that know little more than moving the pieces, and this will enable them to win against the engines from the very beginning.
  • ChessX
    ChessX is a wonderful, free chess software that is perfect for storing and analyzing games, setting up positions, and working with databases. It is compatible with many free chess engines for game analysis. I recommend visiting their website to see a full list of its features and functionality. A must own really. use.
    Another interesting collection of chess games sorted by opening or defense, and also featuring certain Grandmaster's games by name, all in PGN format. A program such as ChessCat is useful for viewing them.

  • Historic USCF Score Sheets
    These score sheets were provided by the USCF during the 70's back when the USCF was located in Newburg, NY. I like them because they have a narrower width so they take less space on the playing table, and because you can record 60 moves on one side, which is more than most other score sheets allow.
