GGZBoards unifies several board games under one hood. Each game is a separate python module for the game logic, and either a local AI module or a network adapter module, or even both. The game servers for Checkers, Hnefatafl, Ludo and Arimaa are also part of the GGZBoard source, all sharing a common Bogaprot core. The chess AI is shared with the GGZ chess server, and for Go the GNU Go engine is used locally, as is GNU Shogi for the Shogi game.
