Beyond the pleasure of being able to replay and study 10 of the best chess games of all time, this Demonstration has Wolfram Language code for chess PGN applications that can be easily reused.

The graphics are similar in appearance to free images found on

PGN parsing code was inspired by a desire to utilize the millions of PGN-format chess games available online from sites like, and as a step along the learning curve of interfacing with computer chess engines like Stockfish (

See [1] for an interesting paper with references to Wolfram Language PGN parsing logic for chess. A general Wolfram Language chess package can be found at [2].
