Chess without turns

Judo Chess is chess without turns! Pieces traverse the board over time rather than jumping immediately to their destination. Once a piece moves, there is a short delay before the piece can move again.

Beta Test

Beta Test

Try out the new version of Judo Chess! We've rewritten the game entirely in Html5 and Javascript, so that Judo Chess works in any browser and does not require Silverlight. This is a beta test, so games are unrated for now and some features are missing and/or incomplete. We'd love to hear your feedback in our forums.

Silverlight does not work in the latest version of Firefox, so you won't be able to play JudoChess in Firefox. =( You can still use Internet Explorer or play on the beta. https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Problems ... ta-p/31069

Did you know you can play Judo Chess on your Mac? Quickbolt posted instructions on how to install and enable Silverlight in the forums. Check it out: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=51 Thanks Quickbolt! Note that the beta will also work on your Mac with no installation necessary.

We're beginning a beta test of the new version of Judo Chess. Click that second Play Now button and try it out. Please give us your feedback in the forums. Note that this is a beta test and not the final version. The Silverlight client is not going anywhere until the new version is better in every way. Enjoy the beta!

Google dropped support for Silverlight in their latest version of the Chrome browser. So if you try to log in now and get asked to download Silverlight, and the download doesn't work, that's Google's fault. What can you do about it? Couple options: use another browser like Firefox or Internet Explorer. Or you can browse to chrome://flags/#enable-npapi and re-enable npapi.
