The Comment You're Replying To

I give great praise to Mr. Lockwood and his Schemingmind.com website.  I
appreciate the power of the variants to increase board vision in the
standard game, lift one's ability to see solutions to current problems by
the use of past experiences with the variants, and the value of expanding
one's 'chess experience' by trying something different.

Alice chess players, be glad, because this game is the latest addition to
the chess repertoire at the site.

The standard chess games one plays here can be enjoyable and challenging.
This is a good chess community.

The play at the site facilitates replay over one's gamescore, and the
response is quick.  Games may be saved as PGN, and categorization of
openings of the standard game are handled by the program.  

The site is a fine addition to internet chess culture.
