I've been teaching my wife chess notation, so we've been playing chess with me blindfolded with varying degrees of success. My computer is suffering some issues, and for some reason I can't upload moves on an iPad when typing here, otherwise I'd put some of our games up.

Two things I've been doing to help the process of playing blindfold are: 1) going even slower, committing moves to memory and repeating the visualization in my mind as I go, and 2) memorizing the board in quadrants. These chunks actually do make the whole board easier to memorize and visualize.


I played a full game with a small handful of check-backs, but I'm very very close! More practice and the goal is within reach! I tried to recreate the game from memory but got tripped up around move 7. You'll have to take my word for it wink.png

A summary of my thoughts and findings is coming soon.
