    Is there an analysis board around here where I can't make illegal moves?

    That's getting awfully close to computer assistance...

    An online chess board? Seems pretty harmless to me since I do not play here. Anyway, I found it on Gameknot. The "gameknot practice board".

    Not on RHP. It will not even complete the castle move for you are take a captured piece off. You have to drag the captured piece off the board first. This makes it more like a regular board. But it is still better because you don't have to set the pieces up to the game position and if you decide you don't like the variation you are trying out you can go back a couple moves or go back and start over with a quick click.

    Not only that, but you can also notice cigarette ash and coffee stains on the edge of the board.
