I have found that the Analysis Board allows projecting future moves, but it does NOT allow me to save the notation for each variation I consider. Is thre a way to copy the variation onto the notebook on the game site? It doesn't copy and paste for me. Thanks, Peter

Is it ok during rhp games (or correspondence games in general) to use a board to assist with thinking about moves? Note I am *not* asking about using a chess engine. I mean setting up the game on a real chess board then playing both sides myself, unassisted by anything else, as an aid to visualisation and planning of moves. Essentially using the board to play ...[text shortened]... tarted here I want to make sure I am not planning to do something that is frowned on.

Thank you, Phlabibit! I will check oit out tomorrow. That would make the site a whole lot easier to use. As you know, when moves sometimes have days between, one can really lose the flow! - Peter

Originally posted by RDMHey... i can see using a real board to analyze moves during and after a move, or the rhp game analyzer thing, but using books and chess databases seems like the wimpy thing to do, a cheap cop-out.
The only time I used a board I spent a few hours working out a win with a king and 2 bishops.
Then promptly forgot how I did it.
