How to Play Fast Chess
Play a random kid who is online and choose the time control
To join tournaments, go to Play vs. Kid and click on the tournament you want to join at least 5 minutes before start time (you cannot join a tournament after it has started). The tournaments have various time controls and numbers of rounds, so be sure you can commit to playing for the duration before you join. When your round is over, you can watch other games still in progress. The next round will be paired when everyone has finished playing the current round, so stay online. Good luck!

Although Monday night meetings at the Madison Library have been canceled for the foreseeable future, we want to invite all our kids to log on to ChessKid on Monday nights from 6-7 p.m. The larger the number of kids who log on at the same time, the better the opportunities to play kids in your ratings range from across Madison. We hope to see you online!
