Challenging a player

In order to begin a new game, you must first challenge a player.

Note: Please ensure that the ChessBot is invited to the channel or private message with the other party that you are challenging in order for the bot to “hear” the challenge.

To do so, mention the ChessBot and the user you wish to challenge.

@chessbot challenge @chris


The challenged player will receive the challenge from the ChessBot.


The challenged player can choose to accept the challenge or decline.


Once the challenge player accepts the challenge, the game begins.
