The gnuchess package contains the GNU chess program. By default, GNUchess
uses a text-based interface. Alternatively, GNUchess can be used
in conjunction with other GUI interface, thus serving as a chess engine.
You should install the gnuchess package if you would like to play chess on
your computer. If you'd like to use a graphical interface with GNUchess,
you'll also need to install other GUI interface, such as xboard.
