Jocly is a very open project for anyone interested in abstract strategy games to be played online.

We publish many games on our platform http://www.jocly.com where people can play against the computer or other jocly users (includes chat and video chat). But there is much more you can do.

If you are a developer, a designer, a game creator or just publishing about games on your blog, you can use jocly on your own sites.

Jocly is always growing and offering new features and tools.
