For the beginner learning chess, this is showing a king's opponent piece that can capture those highlighted unit at the next game turn. The piece would be the queen which is the piece also highlighted in the color of red.

Those captured future path to king will only be displayed when you have the beginner option enabled from the configuration menu at the sub menu called games.

Perhaps you would like to signup at the beginner chess tournament! The tournament is an unrushed turn based game. A player can take up to 24 hours to move a gameboard piece. Finish the tournament within the top four and you will receive tournament points that can one day be used for credit towards a game feature.


Checkers

checkers game.

Checkers is a game for two players using a checkerboard and 12 checkers each. The object is to jump over to capture the opponent's pieces. The captured piece will then be removed from the gameboard.

This somewhat addictive game promotes confident making and helps players develop some good problem solving skills. Checkers is easy to learn and fun to play.

Currently, you are able to play a game of checkers online or against another person offline using the same computer. The game can be accessed online from the lobby. You are able to watch others play the game.

You can finish some daily quests quickly and/or improve your game statistics by playing a quick game of checkers.


Reversi / Snakes & Ladders

snakes and ladders game.

Reversi is a game played on a draughtboard with 64 pieces. Each piece has black on one side and white on the other. When pieces are captured they are turned over, becoming the capturing player's pieces.

A British children's game in which a dice or number wheel determine the moves of players' pieces around a board marked with pictures of snakes and ladders. Pieces move up ladders and pieces move down snakes.


Wheel Estate

signature game.

This is the signature game of this website. The theme is similar to monopoly. Monopoly is a real-estate board game, in which the player's goal is to force all opponents into bankruptcy by buying and developing pieces of property.

What makes this game unique is the units of play. The outer units deal with buying, selling, developing and mortgaging property while the inner units deal advantages and disadvantages to the possession of assets, affecting the financial stability of the player.


Server

the server.

The software in the image above is called the server. Playing games online would not be possible without the server. The server handles all data so that you can play a game with other players around the world.

Members are able to run the server in a limited way. A membership is currently needed. The result is that you are able to host your own games for online play. Currently, all that is required is a site such as this and a mySQL database.

The K Board Games software is developed using the HaxeFlixel library. The K Board Games software is open source. The server has a configuration file that needs to be set before it can go online. More options can be added to that file. Read this topic for more information.
