eboard is a graphical chess program which can function as an interface to
Internet chess servers such as FICS and to chess engines such as Crafty.
eboard has a themeable and freely resizable board, a tabbed or multi-window
display, and supports multiple simultaneous boards.
This package contains a chess interface, which means that you can play against
another human on the same computer, or play on an Internet server.  If you
would like to play against a computer, you should install a chess engine such
as gnuchess in addition.
