Hi David,

Chess+ just so happened after I had stopped inventing games and Nick became more active in the games business. It has been done from an inventor's point of view, not from a Chess player's. So it may seem more rigorous. It allows bishops to be entered on the same sub-grid because disallowing it requires an additional rule. After all, legal Chess positions are possible with bishops on the same sub-grid.

We think it works better than Fischer's brainchild but we fear that this will not represent any future majority.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>
