Kriegspiel involves questioning of a referee, but Game Courier is not able to handle the role of the referee in the manner required by Kriegspiel. Also, since it doesn't support multi-player games, it has no facility for letting a human serve as referee. At best, Game Courier could support a game that is similar to Kriegspiel but designed for a computer to handle. It might be possible to do Dark Chess, but I haven't looked into that game enough to tell what it would require. It might be handled by deleting invisible pieces during the post-game automation code. This should clear pieces from the player's view without removing them from the game. It would also require high level security that prevents anyone from viewing the game unless it is his turn and he gives the right password, and it would have to disable viewing of the movelist.
