    Three of us (A, B & C) wish to set up a game where A plays to B, B plays to C, and C plays to A. This obviously necessitates our changing sides each play, and getting the board to recognize which player has the next move. Any ideas on how to do this?

    Explain a little better... is this all on one board, or 3 games?

    One board: A moves as white, B responds as black, C moves as white, A responds as black, B moves as white, etc.

    You could make it an unrated game between A and B. A and B can move themselves whenever they have the right colour. When players can't move themselves, they send a PM with their move to the player who can execute the move.

    Alternatively, you could all set up your own boards and send the moves to the other players by PM or email.

    How do you win if you play white sometimes, and black sometimes?

    I think the best bet is everyone getting winboard or ChessPad and sending the PGN to each other. That way you don't need to wait for someone else to make your move when it's not your color's turn.

    It'll be a bit like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoYS-Wfx_Zo&mode=related&search=
