I watched my Turbo Color slab play a game of chess against itself tonight. Although there wouldn't be much of a point, it would be fun to watch two NeXT machines play chess against each other over the network. Then again, it would be fun to watch an army of NeXT machines play chess against another army of NeXT machines using Zilla.  :)

Hello NeXT Community:  I was playing NeXT Chess and on the verge of winning , when I went for the castle move and it bombed the app , lol I suspected my NeXT new it was on the ropes and tanked the app rather than concede.  Best Regards Rob Blessin

It looks like GNU Chess added the feature in 1999. So close.

Quote from: ChatGPTIn 1999, the GNU Chess project released version 5.0, which was a major milestone for the program. This version included many new features, such as support for the Chess Engine Communication Protocol (CECP), which allowed it to communicate with other chess engines over a network. It also included improved search algorithms and evaluation functions, which improved its playing strength.
