Lichess Turns 10 Today!
Join us for your complimentary cake and chess tournament!
Today (June 20th, 2020) marks a special day for Lichess - we have officially reached the double-digits! Well on our way to the terrible teens, we'll hopefully skip the more awkward and grumpy stages most teenagers go through.
