After watching a famous TV show about chess, The Queen's Gambit, I felt inspired to create a little chess game from scratch. I am absolutely terrible at chess, so I thought that it would be fun to create a game that could play on my behalf.

I implemented it using a very simple kind of artificial intelligence powered by the minimax algorithm, and in the end, I actually managed to create an application that knows all the rules of the game and can play it decently – I wouldn't know myself, as I am terrible at chess, but I have been told that my AI is decent by friends who can actually play.

The project wasn't without challenges, but it was a ton of fun. If you want to know all the details, I wrote a blog post about it.
