You can play a game against the computer either starting from the usual opening position or after placing pieces onto specific squares of your choice.

To start from any position other than the usual opening, click onto any desired piece and then click onto the square you want it moving to  (ie Do not drag the piece to the new square).

Continue to do this  (in "white-black-white-black" order) until your required position is reached

Once your opening position is as you require then click onto "Play Computer From This Position" to start the game.

Once the "starting board" is shown and should you wish to play as black then click once on the white triangle at the top right of the board.
