    Hi
    I am trying to move but the square turns pink and knocks me back. The move is legitimate. Any ideas?

    You should look more closely. Pink squares mean that you are trying to make an illegal move.

    You are probably in check. I believe the pink is probably a reflection of our embarrassment the first time it happens to us!

    Or possibly your intended move will put you in check.

    Maybe you're gay and you needed this internet site to tell you.



    No seriously, You have made a move that you cannot make.

    Probably because you are in check or you made a move in error.

    You're currently at 0-11, I've seen worse, plus you have a good attitude. Just a quick look at your games and I see you just give pieces away for nothing and sometimes fail to recapture when your opponent takes one of your pieces. Perhaps take a minute more to look at what threats your opponent is making.
