    "I have always loved playing chess but had a hard time finding other people close by who wanted a game when I did. This site is great because I can play other people all the time! It has the computer option too but I always want to be against a real person. The other really cool thing is that I can read chess news and get interested and informed about what's going on with top players which can be fun."

    "My best friend always beats me at chess so I was looking for an online site to practice playing chess to improve my game. I tried Devworks Game Technology, however I was hugely disappointed. Not only was there no chess games available on the site, the quality of games available on the site I consider to be low par. "

    "If you’re even the slightest bit sincere about wanting to play good chess, this is not the site for you. The site has far too many other games for it to be serious or for you to find serious chess players, and therefore if you’re any good at all the competition is going to be pretty weak. I suggest finding a website that focuses only on chess instead."
