GNU Chess lets most modern computers play a full game of chess. It has a plain terminal interface but supports visual interfaces such as X-Windows "xboard" and Windows-for-PC "winboard" as well as a full 3-dimensional wooden chess-board protocol for the Novag Chess board enabling one to be relatively free of the computer itself.

Release Notes: Version 5.00 shares no code with versions 1.x through 4.x. The major motivation for this release is to simplify chess code making it more pedantically accessible, use modern data structures, make it easy to modify by less skilled programmers, and increase understandability to non-programmer, skilled chess experts.
