You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Link to: Peter Chatterton's Gess Applet

Peter Chatterton has written an applet that helps you play Gess. 

There are two versions: one that allows you to play against yourself (or someone else sitting behind the same machine), and another to play Gess against someone on the Internet. 

He also has written a program for playing Gess that can also be downloaded from his website. This also contains a tutorial and two articles explaining the game.

This `link page' is meant to provide a link to another website. Note that we have no connection to, or bear responsibility for the linked sites.
