How do I challenge a friend to play four player chess?

Four Player Chess is even more fun with friends! To challenge someone to a game, first go to the Variants section to see all the chess variants. Hover over 'Play' in the left menu, and click 'Variants': 

And from there, you can choose four player chess! 
Then you'll see the Play menu on the right:

Click 'Customize' at the bottom, and then toggle on 'invite players' so that you can choose what friends to invite: 

Once you have chosen your time settings, and any other custom settings, click 'Invite Players'

Note: you may see one or two pop ups requiring you to acknowledge our rules of behavior and the rules of the game. This is not directed specifically at you, it is simply a reminder of the rules sent to all players every so often.

You will then be able to type in names you want to invite, in the invite text box: 

You can also choose to add bots, decide whether the game is public or not, and choose where players will sit after you invite them. You can also exclude yourself if you are just coordinating the game and starting it for your friends to play with each other.

Once you have 4 players, you are ready to begin your game!
