Want some true, action-filled friendly competition but don't want or like tournaments? Try "ladder chess"!!!
Check out the groups below:
The Dream Team
GrayMatter Ladder Chess
Both groups host ladder chess. Lots of action...however, the Dream Team may not be accepting new members at the moment because the group is already HUGE (888 current members at the time of this post ). However, GrayMatter Ladder Chess is awesome...don't underestimate it - join the group and contact the admin to be added to the current ladder. Official rules are posted there!!!
