Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor:
This pack­age of­fers com­mands to print chess­boards. It can print par­tial boards, hide pieces and fields, color the boards and put var­i­ous marks on the board. It has a lot of op­tions to place pieces on the board. Us­ing ex­otic pieces e.g. for fairy chess is pos­si­ble. It can be used to­gether with the skak pack­age which you can find at http://source­forge.net/projects/la­tex-skak/. REQUIREMENTS chess­board uses some prim­i­tives of e\TeX. It needs a re­cent ver­sion of chess­fss and xkey­val. It also needs the pack­age's pgf­core and pgf­base­shapes (from the pgf bun­dle), and pst-node (from pstricks).
