If you're not into all of the modern, resource-intensive Linux games or just prefer something more skillful, GNU Chess has been updated for some terminal gaming action.

GNU Chess 6.2.0 was released this morning and while it's a big version bump replacing GNU Chess 6.1.2, the changes aren't too lengthy. GNU Chass 6.2.0 offers better integration with XBoard, a simple man page, and minor bug-fixes.

GNU Chess can be played against the computer from the terminal, but the GPL game itself doesn't have a GUI. GNU Chess though integrates with different chess GUI front-ends to serve as the chess engine, such as its XBoard integration.

Those wishing to learn more about GNU Chess 6.2.0 can read the release announcement or by visiting the project site.
