This thread will be dedicated to correspondence chess.

The game will go like this, evey post with an odd number will play white and every even post will play black. The game isn't between any two users, its just that the user who gets to post somewhere, has the right to move a piece of that color as described the previous sentence.

Please use full algebric notation and include full history of the current game.

That is okay and you also do not have specify the start square. For instance Nb8 - c6 is simply Nc6.

1. e2-e4 e7-e5

2. Ng1-f3 Ng8-f6

3. Nb1-c3 Nc6

c4 is the square. Bc4 is the move it means bishop to 4th row, 3rd column. This opening started as a four knights game but has now transposed into a Guico Piano.
