Square Off

Post by AdminX » Fri May 11, 2018 12:11 pm

I wish the pieces and main chessboard were bigger. Lastly, I wonder can a DGT Chessboard work with LiChess or Chess.com? That would be a great feature to have on both of those servers.

I just learned of Chess Guard

ChessGuard Setup for DGT board and chess.com, but there does not appear to be a status update.

Most likely the Square Off app will improve now that they finally managed to deliver to their backers?
They have been mentioning Chess.com at the very least.

My kingdom set arrived this week.
I like it. Some minor quirks and I can't help but fear for it's longevity though I have no reason to do so because the initial impression is one of higher quality than expected.
Board size is okay for solo home use and blitz is out of the question anyway. (I guess it can sort of handle rapid with an increment. I'm curious to see how they will manage time when playing online.) Square size is just under 40mm and does compare to one of my 40mm boards.
