## Mechanics

### Basic Mechanics

You can use the command `$challenge` to challenge the bot to a game of chess.

Use `$move` to make a move. Make sure your move is in SAN (Standard Algebraic Notation) or UCI (Universal Chess Interface). Otherwise, the bot will not understand it.

Use `$view` to view your game.

### Chess Bot profiles

You can challenge multiple levels of the bot. Make sure to specify which level you want to play when using the `$challenge` command.

Use the `$profiles` command to see a list of all levels you can challenge, and use `$profile <tag>` to learn more about a specific bot.
Note: the tag of a bot is _not_ the same as it's name. For example, the tag of the bot "Chess Bot level 1" is `cb1`.

Chess Bot uses a custom built engine to determine which moves it plays. (It's not very good though, because I built it, and I'm bad at coding).

### Timer

To prevent people from abandoning a the game without loss of rating, you will automatically resign if you do not make a move for 3 days.

You will receive a low time warning when you only have 1 day left.

Use `$time` to see how much time you have left.
