What is Guest Play? I can play without an account?

If you don't have an account on Chess.com yet, or want to play a game anonymously with no account attached, you can try our Guest Play! 

First, make sure you are signed out of Chess.com. If you don't have an account, this will be your default state!

From the home screen, simply click Play Online

From there, select your skill level, and then click Play as Guest:

From there, choose your time setting and click 'play' just like a normal game, and you'll be matched with someone who also chose that skill level! 

Since the games are anonymous, there is a chance you may be matched against someone of a much higher or lower skill level than you, since anyone can pick any level. 

For much more accurate matching, the ability to view past games, and save analysis, and much more, please try creating an account here on Chess.com!
