    Is there any good reason I shouldn't be able to play an unrated game against myself? I like the interface and would enjoy being able to play a game against myself here to try certain positions.

    You can do it there, but not save them.

    Go here to get a PGN view, so you can save the games.

    If you want to share the game, you can paste the pgn into a thread and ask for feedback.

    I don't see any reason to have it saved as a game here at RHP...

    Go play with yourself elsewhere.

    Take any game which has only one move in it, then go to the analyse board and reset it. You can't save it though, it will disappear when you close the board.

    Challenge 6 different guys.

    Tell them you want to play against yourself and you will PM them
    the move you want to be played against yourself.

    That way you will have a perfect savable record of all your solitaire games.

    They won't think you are wierd, it happens everyday.

    They will think they are playing for the new Kasparov (if I got his name right).

    Did it happen to you? And did you put the games up in the corner?
