Did you know you can play chess on the Fediverse? 🐴 👑
Castling.club lets you challenge people or put yourself forward to be challenged:
Moves happen by toots using chess notation, there are further instructions on the site.
It works with Mastodon and other ActivityPub-powered platforms.
@switchingsocial Thank you for pointing this out.
chess on the Fediverse?
get a hubzilla account on a hub with the chess plugin installed.
Moves will be shown not just with notation but also in picture -
#Hubzilla is the perfect place in the fediverse for a chess club... just give it a try
If you want to check before registration if a #Hubzilla hub has the #chess plug in installed just add /siteinfo/json to the URL of the hub and check under “plugins for the entry “chess” - if you find also "gnusoc" "diaspora" and "pubcrawl" federation with the fedivers is also activated on that hub …
@switchingsocial mm, this concept wouldn't be too hard to adapt to other games with no randomness or hidden information and a well-defined notation, like assorted chess varients, go, or tak...
@switchingsocial actually some randomness isn't too bad as long as it's openly-known once rolled/drawn, like in Candy Land or Yahtzee (to use a couple well-known examples)
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
