    And so am I. And let's hope that some of the more basic  issues raised by users on the Feedback site are being addressed, especially those relating to default page behaviour!

    I didn't know what Bughouse was, I searched the net just now.

    It is the same as Supply chess, as we call it here.

    The problem with Blindfold chess is that there would be many cheaters with chessboards at hand and a notation sheet at hand, good idea though.

    Thanks for the latest update to Tactics Trainer.  I appreciate the restoration of the stats and listing the average % score for the themes is a remarkable window into my chess brain.
