Nothing beats Christmas; it’s the time for fun and play, for family and friends. It’s the chance to get away from work and reset the batteries. And, of course, it’s the perfect time to knock off some of those games that you just haven’t been able to get around to.
As is tradition for Digitally Downloaded we’re going to count down the 24 games of Christmas – one a day for each day from December 1 through to December 24. The fun, the silly and the crazy, these games have been custom picked by the DDNet editorial team to give you plenty of ideas for stocking fillers, games to play with family and friends on Christmas Eve, or games you should use the extra time over the holiday to get stuck into.
Pure Chess can never outdo the experience of playing face-to-face, but for Chess fanatics, it’s the perfect way to play online. Why? Because it’s play-by-mail, meaning you’ll take a turn, then your opponent will at their leisure. There’s no need to finish an entire game in one sitting.
And for the busy and often distracted Christmas period, that’s the best way to do things.
