    how about, if when someone offers a draw, you get the option to swop places, if for example you think you could win from their position?

    If they are offering a draw then they don't think your position is winning so they would never take that option.

    You could just offer them a set position game with that position.

    this also should probably be in site ideas too.

    the only time I offer a draw is if I think that my opponent is winning...if the position is equal I will always take my chances. That is why nobody would switch places

    I would like this option.

    Surely if it's a dead draw endgame (opposite bishops, rook pawn v king etc) you offer a draw then?
