PGN stands for Portable Game Notation. It is an international format for computer files containing collections of Chess games. As well as all the Chess moves, the PGN files contain the annotations and comments on each game. They can be replayed through many different chess programs (e.g. Fritz, Kchess, etc.).
A selection of games from 50 Chess Games for Beginners is available as a PGN file. This means that you can replay our games using your own favourite chess program. You can even play through our games when you are on the move, without the need to connect to the internet, if you transfer the PGN file onto a laptop.
So far only a few of the games have been converted to PGN format. More will be added as time allows.
Just click the button below to download a zipped PGN file containing a collection of our games.
To replay, simply unzip the downloaded file and then open it with your favourite chess program.
