Danican
The X-Window program Danican lets you play international draughts. This game is slightly different from the one known as draughts in UK and checkers in US. Mainly: * Board is 10x10 instead of 8x8. * A man may capture backwards. * Majority capture precedes. * A king is a long-range piece. To get more information on the game, you may have a look at the International Draughts Federation's website.
Dragon Go Server
The Dragon Go Server (DGS) is a place where you can play turn-based Go with other players from around the world. It functions more or less the same way as playing Go via email would, but the Dragon Go Server provides a graphical representation of the board and handles things such as time limits, scoring and ratings. DGS players typically submit about five moves per week. Thus, games can be expected to take several weeks to complete. Some people play games much more quickly, and DGS enables a wide range of time limits. Playing Go in real time is not really possible here. Playing in "real time" means that both players are online at the same time and see their opponent's moves immediately, as they would when playing in person. A real-time game would take an hour or so to complete, and if two opponents are agreeable, that can be achieved on DGS, even though it is turn-based. If you prefer to play Go online in real time, you should try a real-time Go server such as KGS or IGS. DGS has a user access quota and users are responsible for keeping queries per time-interval within a normal level. This should not affect most players. DGS also provides discussion forums about Go generally and about DGS itself.

Gamazons
Gamazons is a game played on a 10x10 chess board. Each side has four pieces (amazons) that move in a straight line in any direction. The winner is determined by who moves last. Each move consists of two parts. First an amazon moves to a new square and then fires an arrow to another square (in a straight line in any direction from the square the amazon landed on). The square the arrow lands on becomes a permanent block for the rest of the game. No one can move over it, or fire an arrow over it. Every turn an amazon must move and fire an arrow, so every turn there is one less square available on the board. You can block in your opponent, or section off a good chunk of the board for yourself. You can set it to play AI vs AI or whatever you like. There are also Auto Finish and Force Move defaults.

Gnugo Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Recently GNU Go has been developed into a more sophisticated program playing at around the 16 kyu level on the NNGS Go server. The program builds cleanly on many platforms. An ASCII interface and an Emacs mode are also supported. This summer, for the first time, it participated in international tournament play. In the 21st Century Cup held at the US Go Congress, GNU Go placed 8th in a field of 12. This may not sound impressive but actually we were satisfied with its performance. GNU Go won 3 out of 6 games and two of the games it lost were close. Moreover it scored an upset win over former Ing Champion program Wulu. In the European Championship GNU Go placed second, winning 5 out of six rounds, and losing only to the undefeated GoAhead.
