Keeping track of games New here, just subscribed to membership and joined a team. The problem is keeping track of each game. Already let one get away, a win that is. How do all of you manage your games, any suggestions?

Analyse window - Yes I do currently use the analyse window. Would be nice if it would not let you do an illegal move. Concerning software, for game storage and analysis later----Does anyone have favorite sites with multiple wares available? How about freeware?

try this go to your stats page, click on all past games then click on "download all available games in pgn format" and you will have them all. Then just play through them at your leisure.

there is a lotů of software (including freeware) out there that do what you want. As a Mac user, I am not
familiar with what is available for the PC. Do a google search for chess software and see
what you get. I seem to remember in an earlier thread some mention of a program called SCID.
maybe someone else here can offer some advice.

Good luck.

Make sure ... ... not to take more games than you can handle. I usually keep about 15 games, and make about 7 moves (ie, play on 7 of those games) a day. This allows me to take the kind of time I want to carefully review each game before I move, and gives me a little extra time in case something 'comes up' in real life, and I miss a day.

Less is better. Nothing worse than rushing moves in a slow-time game, and missing the win, eh?
