New Way to Play Chess on the Blog

We’ve found some software that lets you enter moves with your mouse, directly on the board. Just click on the piece you want to move, and then on the square to which you want to move it. Easy, no? Try it!

[Event "Test Game, Chad vs. Urania"]
[Site "MuseBlog"]
[Date "2009.06.05"]
[White "Chad"]
[Black "Urania"]
[CBBWhiteId "*"]
[CBBBlackId "*"]
[Result "0-1"]
1.e4  b6 2.Bc4  Nc6 3.Qf3  e5  4. Resigns  

This board won’t save your moves for other people to see. (At least, the documentation says it won’t. We can’t tell.) To make it do that, you need a MuseBlog chessplayer’s account with a password. Then you could log in and play your opponent without having to post your moves for an Administrator to enter. We can make those accounts if there’s enough interest. Note that a valid email address is required.
