    This is a great site and always look forward to making my moves, however i think there should be an option so you can flip the board in the game you are analysing, i always think this gives a fresh perpective on the game and i tend to see things i wouldn't normally see when looking at the game from my opponents position

    or is there already a way to do this that i don't know of

    You can go into the print board function and flip it from there...

    It doesnt allow you to analyse the board tho....

    You can go to your opponents profile, look at their public games and find your games. It always gives it from the players perspective

    Rather than just bolt this on, I will be soon rewriting from scratch the board client code (January 05, probably). I aim to provide a 'best in breed' new interface that will feature this (and a whole lot more). Stay tuned.
