I see that when I look at my archive page, the View board game links are of the form:
That is they are the same links that showed up on the My Games page as if we were still playing them. From this view you basically cannot do anything at all except see the final position. However, when I look at a game (or try to show it to my son, for example, as a teaching aid) I want to be able to step through the game and show variations that might or might not have been played, etc.
I suggest that it would be more useful to have a view game history link of the form:
Note that this should require very little coding, but would make the archive page much more immediately useful.
