Play OverviewPlay Overview

Lazy Chess (2021) is a puzzle game that simplifies the classic game for newcomers. Rather than choose any move yourself, you simply choose between the best two options.

Play evolves like a classic game of chess. But the game analyzes the board itself so you just have to choose between the best two moves. The twist is you won't know which move is best until after you’ve confirmed your choice. In any turn, your options may allow you to defend, progress, capture, or even use special rules such as castling.

As you progress you can learn creative moves and tactics as they play out. Those with experience can play with speed against a world-class neural network or compete against a computer opponent, online with strangers or friends. You can even opt for Challenge Mode to use the openings of famous games and see if you can progress with the grandmasters.
