oh that is easy...

just stick white paper on the borders and write down the coordinates. Or simply draw a picture of a big 16x16 board with coordinates etc - maybe in many pieces - print it out, stick it on cardboard or a spare table...

Big Chess is only in your mind, no board, no engines ;)

That makes quite a good quote! [seriously!]

I have to see the board on the screen at least: I can't play bigchess *totally* in the mind ... ;)

Normajean, 1 point :)

Ok ok :) .. I meant thinking about your moves only. I have to be even more careful about what I post now that you're in the place ;)

Why thibault? Relax! I am on your side!

seriously, that's a damn good quote:

and <<Why thibault? Relax! I am on your side!>> - that also I meant seriously... not to worry, no quid pro quo :)
