I have read about six posts on castling in 960, as well as the unhelpful help screens. Can anyone tell me how to castle as Black in this position? I mean what do I drag where to make it happen?
The king and rook have not moved but I can't seem to castle.
I meant to castle king-side. Queen-side works OK.
Castling in 960 always works (when legal) by moving the king onto the rook.
Note that in this position, you can only castle h-side, where the king and rook will end up on the g8 and f8 squares, respectively. Castling a-side is not legal because the king and rook would end up on c8 and d8, yet the d8 square is not empty.
Thanks. What you say is correct.
Can someone give me a crash course on 2 bishops #?
