    When it's your turn to move, enter your move on the board, then click on the 'offer draw' option before clicking the 'move' button. Your opponent will then have the option to accept the offer or make another move to continue the game.

    Do you lose any points for offering a draw and when it is accepted?

    Yes, but it doesn't make any difference who made the offer.

    If a draw is offered and accepted, the higher rated person loses a few points and the lower rated player will pick up a few. I don't think it's as much as if you're dealing with a win or loss, and if the players ratings are about the same I don't think any points will change.

    Hopefully someone will correct me if this is wrong information...
