When I was shown this in January I wasn’t surprised to see a turn based with Twitter as the transport mode appear, I was very happy that turn based social gaming has left Facebook. The first step by was to implement a javascript based chess and checkers client which posts a challenge and the subsequent moves to Twitter via the public stream or via DM. There will be a leader board to track progress in the games.

The public version makes it possible for others to follow the moves of the people they follow by using the short link posted in the message, as seen below. And the private version doesn’t spam your followers with messages for people who don’t want to clutter their public stream with messages.

An example Twitter Game from TwitGam.es

They have plans to launch in 2011.
