Too expensive

SevaTheChessMAster
Why is this Diamond, Platin or gold so expensive that’s so unfair i want to do the puzzle not only one time, i want to make it many times without MONEY! And what is when somebody don’t have this money? THAT’S REALLY UNFAIR!

Welcome to life, kiddo...

There are free alternatives, you just have to search them out.

Other than "special chess.com tournaments" (which require really good chess ability/rating to usually win anything), some clubs offer forum games or other non-chess things to win memberships occasionally.

This is one club that does this every now and then.

p.s. I am in no way associated with this club except for being a regular member currently.

Hey, staff at chess.com deserve to be paid for their work - they have bills to pay too. When I was younger I didn't have much money so I did without. That's just life. Nothing is free.

BattleSoldier

That may have sounded harsh, but I watched as other kids got to do cool things when I couldn't. It just made me stronger and work harder. I WAS bummed at the time, of course.

Also for the op @seva0663 (as well as anyone else interesting in this forum), here is a good resource for an introduction to chess "opening principles" which will greatly help beginner and intermediate players especially improve at chess and navigate the opening more safely. happy.png

Its not really as expensive as you think not for adults anyway. If you do the math 100 dollars divided by 12 months it comes out to 8 dollars and 30 cents a month. Really I think it feels expensive because of the 100 dollar up front cost but really its less then Netflix. Now maybe to a lot of people Chess is not better then Netflix so its seems like its not enough value, however I got to say they let you do a lot for free with no payment. So really its what ever floats your boat so to speak.

1. It is not that expensive

2. If you are REALLY short on money, then maybe you can stick to a basic membership or you can play on [removed].org as the features there are free.

That club is closing sad.png

Sadly yeah, I posted that post a day or two before the club closing was announced. It isn't closing until early September though (roughly a month from now) and there are still chances for prizes between now and then.

Personally I think chess.com offers a very fair price for its premium services, if you just want tactics there are many other websites like chesstempo.com

Sneakiest_Of_Snakes

As a kid, I actually used the "expensive" prices of the premium memberships to motivate me to become a titled player. If you are titled, chess.com gives you free membership forever! As EnergeticHay mentioned, there are other places if you really need them... Good luck!

redzippyquest

membership is paid not just for puzzles, but for other benefits (for example, i wanted puzzles, but also expanded analysis features!). if you're only in it for the puzzles, then i suggest you look elsewhere.
