Jan-12-05  johnwgoes: So are these blindfold games literally blindfold, i.e. the players are not able to look at the board, they may only play algebraicly?
Jan-12-05  isolatedpawn: <johnwgoes> Yes these games are literally blindfold. Each player has a computer screen in front. The last move is shown on the board. However only the piece moved appears on the board and nothing else, I mean no other piece or pawn is visible. The player then either announces his/her move, or writes down the move, or enters it (in algebriac notation) on the computer. The computer then relays the information to the other player. i.e.: the other player sees the move (again the same process as above). This is how they play blindfold chess!!! So yes they are unable to look at the board at all.
Sep-12-08  DoubleCheck: Since its blindfold chess u can't blame then fo not doing an interesting line like;

11. Nxe7 Qxe7
12. c4 b4
13. Qa4 Bd7
14. Nc2 O-O
