Game description

Chenard is a free, open source chess programme that plays rather strongly (at least, for a novice player). Despite the minimalistic interface, it offers several advanced features, such as saving and loading the current position on the board, and the undo move option.

The game was ported to Windows and is now also available as a module for the xBoard cross-platform open source chess engine.
