GNU Chess 6.1.0 introducing graphic (terminal) mode 2013-11-11

I just bumped GNU Chess to 6.1.0 in Gentoo (package games-board/gnuchess, optionally games-board/gnuchess-book). Since the change log advertised a new graphic mode using Unicode characters without showing pictures, here is something for you to see:

Default, non-graphic

Graphic mode (guake, default font settings)

Graphic mode (guake, font “Monospace 32pt”, board only)

PS: The PNG images above were reduced by 54.13%, 12.98%, 16.61% in size by optipng 0.7.4 (package media-gfx/optipng).

I already tried some chess games but this is the most interesting i think.

I never tried GNU Chess, but i will defenetly look into it now! Especially if you want to play chess at work and it should not look like you’re doing so
