Welcome to Akkad!

In his infinite greatness, His Majesty the Sultan Tarek Manesmin, allows the use of "Akkad" even the infidels, for you to use them.



The producer of watered wine is like his wine: flat and anonymous.

[Ancient Afghan Proverb]

1. Introduction

Akkad is a free UCI chess engine derived from Ippolit. It's not a complete chess program, but requires some UCI compatible GUI (like XBoard with PolyGlot, Eboard, Josè, Arena, Scid, Sigma Chess, Shredder, Chess Partner, or Fritz) in order to be used comfortably. Read the documentation for your GUI of choice for information about how to use Akkad with your GUI.
