Since UChess is huge, buggy, updated too often and requiring a lot of
resources, and since Vector Chess is so weak that even I can beat it giving it
more time to think than to myself, and since I'm not about to spend a lot of
money just to play chess occasionally, I use Chess 2.0, an old but good PD
program for which few seconds per move on a slow Amiga are enough to squeeze
my lazy brain. Just the original pieces don't look very nice, and since the
author insisted that we might create our own if we didn't like them, I did.

Included in the archive is a quickly a dirty written utility to convert IFF 
brushes into a suitable ASCII format, as well as example brushes.

Enjoy.
