You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Bookie Chess:

Bookie Chess is an online game playing system which allows two players to play 'Bookie Chess'. <p>In the first stage of the game, pawns and kings are hidden. Two players estimate (or "bid"), secretly and in writing, the probability, in percent, of each color winning the game given this incomplete information. The players then reveal their estimates. Whichever player bid higher on white plays white. The other player plays black. Players then gain points for winning, based on the amount of the bids.
