    You get already six games as a 'freeloader' - which is four more than a couple.

    I wouldn't pay $5 either, whoohoo I'm a freeloader and proud of it

    most of what you get here for 40 and more is free at chess.com. Just stating a fact.

    I reckon those with stars probably think it's worth it. Those without don't. Just a guess.

    I think its too much in a competitive market kinda way it would be Ok $39. 95 if there weren`t other more tempting options online.

    I think ICC is best for folks who wish to pay and receive the best online chess possible.(arguably at least since a few others might be quite nice too).

    This site is kinda good for correspondence though and the forums are good I think.

    If I was in charge I would consider chess purchasing chat as chess chat.
    I personally would treat this like folks deciding which chess books to buy.
    I wouldn`t recommend chatting about car purchases unless you were to put an red hot pawn on the side of the car.

    Funny, I'm in the market for a chess site. I agree the $40 tag is a bit much, but spread out over a year its not much. I would resub here if there was a rated blitz. I am kicking around the chess.com thing but I thought it was a tad choppy in the blitz. I am enjoying chesscube very much but there isn't cc on that site. Is there cc on playchess? What I'm looking for is a site that has cc and normal/blitz on one site.

    30 was fine, but at 40, I can't promise I'll be around when subscription time comes around. I think 40 is getting pretty steep.

    chess com's live chess interface is renewed and solid.
