A Python chess game for two human players

Project description

KingSnake is a Python implementation of chess for two human players. Because players are also objects, an AI implementation would also be possible.

A simple text-based chess game can be started with the script kingsnake. This script calls in xterm with a large font. If you don’t want to use the xterm terminal, you can call directly.

KingSnake checks each move for legality and only allows legal moves to occur. However, because the library is open, you of course also have the possibility to move pieces around manually without invoking moves, making it possible to set up historical chess games and revel in the past.

This software is released under the GNU General Public License, so feel free to use it any way you like. It would be nice to let me know if you do anything cool with it though.
