Re: Correspondence Chess

I meant is there a way to render the board on the computer rather than the real board and pieces?

Re: Correspondence Chess

Yes, I have one wood board. Got it when I was very young.

I use online boards when I am on the internet.

Grandpappyd made a beautiful board that he lost.

Re: Correspondence Chess

I think "6 Nf3" should read "6 Ngf3" (deduced from 7 0-0) to show which knight is referred to, as both knights can reach f3.
