    I was wondering whether there are some chess lovers or chess curious in the community, so that we can organize some little tournament (for example on lichess, but any other real time websites would do).

    There's no need to be good -I'm far from strong myself- or to even know the rules. It's just an occasion to have some fun together.

    Lichess is a free website to play chess in real time. Making an account is super easy.

    On lichess there is the possibility to make teams and play within the team, so I was thinking about creating the JCC team, in case anyone is in.

    Let me know if you're interested !

    Yeah we played a bit, but in true JC style we used a website called Red Hot Pawn

    I only play chess when it's thematically relevant.

    Oh nice! That's correspondence though, isn't it? I was thinking about trying to do it real time.

    I’m quite mediocre and haven’t played in many, many years but would join.

    redhotpawn is nice because you can do correspondence, but you can also definitely play in real time if two people agree to meet up, or just happen to be on at the same time.

    I'm talking about setting the time control and do for example a 3 minutes blitz or even a bullet game real time, with instantaneous move and also a chat window on the side of the chessboard ;)

    I'm not super familiar with redhotpawn but lichess and chess.com look way more user friendly imo.

    Anyway, if we are at least 4 we can organize some little tournament to see how we feel.

    I'm the type of game player that plays chess and thinks "There should be special powers for the pieces beyond just movements. And individual squares should have unique attributes. We should probably add dice for an element of chance. Oh, and a deck of 'event' cards to spice it up." and then spends 99% of the time working on the advanced rules.

    Nah, the only indisputable quality of chess is that there is nothing left to dice.

    yeah, i've used those sites as well. 3 minutes is a little fast for me, but i would give it a go. ten minutes is probably more my speed. i'm spaceshiptrucker on lichess if you want to play a game sometime. i had to make a new account it's been so long.

    sounds good to me. 10|0 is ok for me, but any time control will do
