Hi everyone, some improvements have been added to the Chessboards feature, now you can play with move validation which means you won't make an illegal move by mistake. It will also detect when a king is in check smiley
The move validation feature is in beta testing at the moment, so if you find any gremlins smiley with it while playing don't hesitate to let me know the details (you can switch it on or off at any time during a game). Separately, it will now be displayed on the main menu if there is a waiting game, so it shouldn't take so long for another player to join. More refinements will be added soon to make this the best place to play chess on the mobile web.

UPDATE 05/09/14:
The Moves list has now evolved into Game history smiley This allows you to click on any move and view the position when that move was made. You can even replay or rewind the entire game from there for reviewing purposes!

Note that this feature will only be available for moves made from today onwards. Coming soon players will be able to agree to instantly reverse a game to any previous position via the Game history.

The numbering for the move list will now work correctly in all browsers, and has also been adjusted to make it more semantic for move notation.

Added a new feature to the chessboards - players can now create a new (private) board from any position of an existing game. This will better assist analysis of games (as the players may be reluctant to revert the same board of a completed game, or players outside the original game may want to analyse).

There is also now a charge of 25 pluses to create a new chessboard. This is to discourage the frivolous creation of boards.

You can now select which piece you want when promoting a pawn (instead of automatically getting a queen).

Auto-refresh every 2 minutes has been added for each board (except for the player whose turn it is).

Ranked Match mode added. This is the upgrade you've all been waiting for, which will allow for serious competition and ensure formal settlement of matches. The players list has also been improved - it now automatically includes every player who has actively played in the last 30 days, and displays an Elo rating for each player (the default is 1200). This will be adjusted depending on the strength of your opponent and whether you win, lose or draw.

Number coordinates now appear at the side of the board (new version, except in UCweb and Opera Mini). Number of moves for each game shown in boards list, along with a filter at the top to hide boards with 1 move or less (both old and new version). Online indicator added for player whose move it is (new version, old version to follow soon).
