About ChessJam


The Beginning

ChessJam started in February, 2009 when two ChessJam founders, Greg and Sean decided to play a game of online chess to finally determine who was the better player. They explored several online chess sites and to their surprise, found all of them disappointing. This quickly led to a "what if" discussion followed by the assembly of a small team to build a new online chess experience.

Eight months later, ChessJam 1.0 launched! Since the launch, we've grown at a nice pace and have added live Tournaments, Facebook integration and many other fun features.
