Although playing Kriegspiel on the computer can be fun, I much rather
playing it in person.  I play with a group of friends every Wednesday
night and more and more it seems we have problems with the referee,
usually missing calls.  So in an attempt to remedy that I've been in
search of a computer chess program for the referees to use.  I need one
that has a side view, to match what the referee sees:  black on one side
and white on the other as opposed to one on top and the other on the
bottom.  You would think this would be simple to find, but so far I
haven't had any luck.  I have ChessMaster 9000, but it doesn't allow for
a side view.  Plus having the referee use a computer program would allow
the players to watch the game back once they have finished playing.  This
would help clarify all those 'I don't understand' and 'how's that
possible' moments.  Can anyone help?  I thought this would be an easy
endeavor, but not so far.
