But Christofer, there is one more type of online game, I am facing
problem in the game of chess. If you or your wife is having any
account at, just login there, means here:

Loging with the credentials and then click at Beginners' zone and
there you would be seeing some list of tables, there select any room
(means e.g., Active Advantage, Barcelona, or Azure or like this
anyone, where you see the strength around 85 to 90) and in a new
popped up windows you wd be seeing some tables and players playing)

Here is the problem in this game, that when you try to play someone,
the windows is popped up but the game doesn't get started even though
the Java is installed and everything is running well. If you really
have account or your wife have, I hope you might be knowing.
