phpChess offers free installation and skinning for schools
phpChess has always been suportive of the educational aspects of chess. In 2008 we made phpChess free for state schools and state funded education systems, In 2009 we extended phpChess to be free for anyone by moving to a donation based software aproach. Given the great success we have had with this aproach it is now time to give more back. phpChess is pleased to offer basic skinning of the phpChess Server for free to publicf sector schools. This service is limited only by the bandwidth we can provide, so no gurantee that we will be quick. phpChess believes in the educational relevance of chess, memory, competitiveness, strategic forthought and utilising alternative methods for conflict resolution.
