Abstract—In this paper, a new technique for better management of winning conditions in online auto chess multi-player games is proposed. This technique is based on the development of a dynamic API that communicates with the server’s database in real-time with minimum user intervention. Many existing mechanisms for auto-gaming rely on HTTP, which needs constant update requests from the client/player. To handle this problem, web sockets are employed that allow real-time communication between the client/player and the server, so the updates are sent immediately over the network whenever they are available. The proposed methods were validated by the practical implementation and a set of experimental tests. The web application uses Python Django REST Framework, allowing the extension of the web application to API. The database is implemented employing the PostgreSQL database management system.

Keywords—API, auto chess, backend REST, multiplayer game, web application.
