Lucas Chess has many great features to play and improve your Chess

You can annotate positions, write comments, set themes and add variations.

1. Play against an engine
The program has 61 pre-installed engines you can play against with very different levels, from 0 to 3300 ELO. Version R includes the latest neural network engines of the Maia project that emulate human play based on a certain ELO. You can add your own engines as long as they use the UCI protocol.

Younger children will be able to begin their journey 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. Lucas Chess even supports physical DGT boards.


2. Train your Chess

  • A wide selection of excellent training modules to improve your chess skills.


3. Compete

  • Compete against a trainer (being an engine you play against). You get rating points based on your performance.
