4. When your opponent is present, make a move
You cannot make a move until both players are at the board. There is an indicator which is RED if the player is absent and GREEN when the player is present. When both player indicators are green, White may make the first move.
5. You must DRAG a piece to move it
Clicking on a piece or a square will not move the piece, only drag. This will be updated in the future, so click-to-move will be possible. Currently only DRAGGING a piece will move that piece.
Once you release the piece the move is made and no take-back's are allowed. Please be CAREFUL when moving!
