Macintosh Chess Board Games Recreation

This category covers links to pages related to chess software for the Macintosh. This includes both home pages and download links for such software, but review pages as well. There are many types of chess software: chess-playing programs, chess database programs, chess publishing programs, chess interface programs, and more. The category itself is reserved for links to software whose primary purpose is to allow a Macintosh to play chess against a human. Other Macintosh chess-related software should fit in one of the subcategories.
