This is the default chessboard for playing games on Tornelo.


Players seek to change 3 aspects:

  • Board size
  • Colour of board
  • Style of pieces

Resize the board

The board automatically resizes itself to fit your screen. 


The board always assumes the biggest size that is possible for your device. It is not possible to make any manual changes. 


Colour of board

Users can set the default color of their chessboard to Blue (default) or 5 other options (see below)


It is possible to set a default choice for your account as well as make changes before and during the game.

1) Account settings

  • Go to your User Account settings
  • Select the Board style you prefer
  • Click Save changes

2) Before or during your game

  • Click on More next to your board and select Game preferences
  • Select the Board style you prefer
  • Click Save

Style of pieces

Users can set the default color of their chessboard to Chigorin (default) or 8 other options (see below)


It is possible to set a default choice for your account as well as make changes before and during the game.

Choose your favourite combination!
