Here's what could be more helpful than posting a game in abbreviated algebraic notation. Go to play.chessvariants.com/pbm/play.php, click on Move, play out a game that demonstrates how this game works, then click on Annotate, add appropriate annotations (which is explained below), then click Get Code, copy the code to the clipboard, come to this page, start to write a comment, click Source to enter HTML code, then paste the code into your message. This will allow us to use Game Courier to view the game move by move, and it will be less likely to include mistakes than something you do by hand. To enter annotations, enter them like C++ or PHP inline comments, which normally begin with // and occur either at the end of a line or on their own line. A comment on its own line will be displayed with the preceding move. So, any annotations for a move should occur after the move, not before it.
