  • Private chess games invitations – the private invitation lets you invite a specific online player by clicking on the challenge beside the name of the player. Otherwise you can be invited by another player when the private area is clicked on.
  • Public chess games invitations – When you send a public invitation everyone is invited to play with you, or anyone else can invite you to play along with them. As soon as someone accepts this type of invitation, the invitation is cancelled and the area is seen as public.
  • The way a chess invitation is accepted or rejected – It is possible to cancel a chess invitation made to you by clicking on "Reject."
