    Not that I expect this to be a regular thing to happen, in fact I expect it to be very rare indeed, but just for the fun of it, a friend of mine and I took a game to nothing but kings, just to see if the site would reconize it as a stalemate. it didn't. May I suggest that such a situation be added to automatically reconize this.

    It's not as rare as you think.

    This is a classic example of why such a system should NOT be in place.

    Just look at the amazing fun you can have with two kings!

    There is no automatic detection, but any of the players can click on Claim Draw if a draw state is reached.

    Only 2 kings left is not the same as stalemate.
    They're both draws, but different ways of getting there.
