SchemingMind is a correspondence chess playing website. After signing up, users can play games against the site's more than 600 active users from around the world. Correspondence games usually last for several weeks or months. While contemplating their next move, players are free to consult a book or try moves out on a chessboard at home. The only things players are asked not to refer to are chess-playing computer programs.
SchemingMind is a member organization of the British Federation for Correspondence Chess (BFCC), which represents England in the International Correspondence Chess Federation (ICCF). All full members of SchemingMind have the opportunity to participate in officially rated ICCF team events.
Developers can integrate SchemingMind with other applications using its API, which lets players retrieve their games and make moves in them.
