Fun! It would add to the challenge to have the yellow box move through the pieces AT RANDOM, rather than in order - but I realize that might be difficult to set up.

Jun 12, 2016
Nice. Although two things: first, it gets a bit old to type in "pawn" 16 times, or even use copypaste for it all. Second, seeing just one set of pieces wasn't sure if I was seeing black or white and then knowing the placement of king/queen gets harder. Unless you are used to computer chess I guess.

I was very confused the first time because I thought you meant to label each piece specifically, e.g. queenside black rook, kingside white bishop, white d pawn, etc.

Why? This turns it into a typing challenge rather than one of knowledge. Do we really think that an extra 30 seconds will make people suddenly remember a knight or bishop? I’ve been playing chess all my life but I can’t get more than 2 points because I can’t type fast enough even when I copy and paste pawn
