You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. 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.

Kriegspiel Referee: http://www.network54.com/Forum/188265/

A team of QBasic programmers have created a program which acts the part of a Kriegspiel referee. Thus it is possible for two players to play a game (like correspondence chess of old days) via email, etc. Unfortunately, it cannot run interactively. The players do much like the old snail-mail correspondence chess players did. Well, a bit faster using email or posting in the forum itself. Even more unfortunately, the other programmers just did it as a fun programming assignment and have no interest in actually playing. So I would like to make some posts on your forum to try to get a player (or more). Mac
