The Dagaz project has provided a lifeline to keep the Player Sections running with modern technology (HTML5 and JavaScript). Previously, Java applets were used to present the games, a technology that has become all but extinct, losing support from modern browsers and losing the license to use it freely.
As of January 12, 2020, all games have been converted to Dagaz and the Player Sections have become Java free! The rest of MindSports following shortly thereafter.

Below is the complete list of playable games featured on MindSports. They can be played interactively here; some against an AI as opponent. Visit the Player Sections for correspondence play against another person.

Hosting a few more: in appreciation of letting us use the Dagaz game app, we host a (small) selection of the games implemented by its developer Valentin Chelnokov. They are made available in our Player Sections, but are not otherwise presented on MindSports. Linked-to rules are to be found elsewhere. Game copyright lies with the respective owners.
