Sorry Simon, but I beg to differ on the boards question, ---- though your right about the pieces. As I said, the board I bought in july certainly has raised black squares.

I suppose though this is just a case of who's seen more of which make of tactile chess boards.

I see our american cousins, are not satisfied with messing up the Braille code and everything that goes with that, but in the uk it has always been the white squares have always been raised as has been the markings of the white pieces have always been distinguish by a point on there tops.

While every designer of chess sets for the blind makes the board his or her own way, it is standard for the black squares to be raised and the black pieces to be marked. What moves are not being accepted as legal ones in the chess program? Maybe you're entering them incorrectly? Just a thought. Thanks.

Hello fellow chess players

This might come as an odd question and I'm hoping there is a simple answer to it. I own one of those tactile chess sets. What I'm wondering is there a standard as to which colour squares are the raised ones? That is to say
are all the black squares raised or are the white?
 The reason is sometimes playing the Spoonbill chess I can't help but
wonder since during a game the requested moves aren't always possible. Any
help is greatly appreciated.

Ron
