ChessJam is an exciting online chess game where you can put your chess strategies to the test. Once you created your ChessJam account, you will be able to challenge other users in a game, play against robots, chat with users from all over the world and do many other things.

The installation is fast and clean, though, in order to install this application properly you will need to download and install Adobe Air if you don't have that already installed on your system. When you run the program for the first time, you will notice its simple and interactive interface, with a cool medieval theme. The castle represents the "building" where all matches happen, the tower is the place where you will find the game rooms and in the courtyard you can chat with other users or challenge them to a game.

The chess game is presented as realistic as it can be: there are time limits for each move, you won't be able to undo your move, etc. The game ends when one of the players is checkmated, when the timer for one of the users goes off or when a move is repeated three times. The more matches you win, the higher your rating will get; but if you lose, your rating will decrease.

Whether you win or lose while playing against robots, your current rating won't be influenced by the result of this kind of game.

The application also gives you access to a built-in instant messenger where you can initiate discussions with other users, see who is online, check the tables activity and many other.

You can always check which users have the highest ratings, see the real-time ChessJam activity worldwide, be informed about the available tournaments and many others, only by simply clicking on the "Stats" button.

Briefly, ChessJam is an engaging online chess game where you can compete against other players from all over the world.
