πΆ USAGE

The current active color (Who's move it is) is represented by the color of the information bar, and the corner board squares.

This game uses long algebraic notation without pieces names for submitting moves.

This method for determining moves is perfect for simplicity and clarity, and is standard for the Universal Chess Interface (UCI).

πΉ How to Notate

Long algebraic notation (without pieces name) is simple to understand. This notation does not use capture symbols or check/checkmate symbols; it uses only the squares involved in the move and any promotion occurring.

{Starting Square}{Ending Square}{Promotion Piece(if needed)}

1. Locate the starting square and the ending square of the piece being moved, without mentioning the piece itself.
2. Identify the column letters (a-h) and row numbers (1-8) that align with your desired move.
3. If a pawn reaches the opposite end of the board the pawn gets promoted, add the letter representing the piece it is promoted to at the end of the move.
4. Put it all together and you've got your notation!

Piece Notations for Pawn Promotions:
• 'n' for Knight ('k' is reserved for the King in chess notation)
• 'b' for Bishop
• 'r' for Rook
• 'q' for Queen

Normal Move Example: Moving a piece from e2 to e4 is notated as "e2e4".

Pawn Promotion Example: Promoting a pawn to a queen is notated as "e7e8q".
