Chess board in your terminal.
gambit does not have many features at the moment. I plan on adding a chess engine, mouse support, timers, networked play, game replays, etc...
Suppose you want to open as white with Pawn
E4. You will first select the square with the piece you want to move by typing
E2, then type the square of the desired end position
Just like a real chess board,
gambit currently supports illegal moves. This will likely change in the future.
gambit supports local and networked play. You can play a local game by running
gambit and moving the pieces. You can flip the board by pressing ctrl+f to allow the second player to go.
For networked play (not available yet), both players can run
gambit unique-room-id, this will connect both players to a shared room in which both can take turns making moves.
