Online Chess Servers – How to Download your Own Games

Different online servers provide ability to download your games, which is useful if you want to analyse them yourself, add a game to your opening database, etc.

Lichess gives you a link like this:


From what I recall, PlayChess automatically stores all your games locally, which is convenient, unless you use several machines, I am not sure  how it handles this case.

ICC, at least the Blitzin interface, makes you download each game one by one, which is ridiculous, time consuming, and must be done very frequently, as this is only possible for the last 20 games you played.


Is there a better way to get your games on ICC, or on other servers? I’d like to hear if you have experience with other systems.
