    There should/could be a spot on the RHP where some feature games are displayed as they are played. Maybe the highest rated matched players at the time. I suppose only those games that can be currently displayed for everyone see would be eligible. We could take the top three and once one ended go after another so we see the games from
    stort till they are completed.

    These new pages are about to become part of the site proper soon, and they do feature the games most people are interested in.

    I had a similar proposal once, described in Thread 42150, "One mover a day"

    In order to demonstrate the idea, so close of my proposal as possible, I created Thread 42736, where I presented one new move, with corresponding position, every day until the game was over. It went quite popular, people commenting, guessing the next move, and such.

    The idea was that two of our top ranked members would play a secret game with eachother, and that game was to be presented move after move, one move a day, with comments from them selves or by the readers.

    This idea of mine is similar to yours, isn't it?

    Wow, Russ, you are my hero!

    The only drawback is that we can't comment on them until they are finished...

    It would be nice to have some game going that we really can comment as they go.

    ...but I am still happy with this new feature!

    I thought about comments too, but it would give the players some
    thing to read that they shouldn't have. After game comments would
    still be nice.
