Play Challenge

Win Great Prizes While Playing Your Favourite Game!

What is it?

It’s a Leaderboard competition hosted by chess24 between the 24th December 00:00 CET- 3rd January 23:59 CET. Players will climb the leaderboards by finishing games in the newly released Playzone!

By entering this Play Challenge, participants are deemed to have accepted and be bound by the rules detailed below.

Leaderboard Mechanics

The leaderboard records the games finished per player and populates daily the top 20 performers.

Games will be recorded from both web and mobile and the leaderboards can be viewed on both platforms.

*A finished game is defined as a single game completed with a minimum number of moves resulting in a draw, win or loss. A winner’s eligibility can and will be associated with a minimum number of opponents played during the duration of the challenge. Finished games will be recorded from the new mobile app and the new web Playzone only. A higher than deemed reasonable number of early resignations, games of too few moves or overly quick games will not be counted. If bot use is detected a player will not be eligible. If a player subscribes to chess24 premium membership mid-challenge, the games finished previously will be reset and the user will begin accumulating games on the premium leaderboard. chess24 reserves the right to eliminate players who do not comply with the rules and regulations or engage in any other behaviour deemed unfair.

Who can participate?

Only chess24 registered users will be eligible to participate in this Play Challenge.

There will be two leaderboards: one for premium users and one for non-premium.

Users who are not chess24 premium subscribers will be automatically recorded on the “Open” Leaderboard, whereas users who are  chess24 premium users will be recorded in the “Premium” Leaderboard.
