Can I export my game data?

As well as RSS feeds for games you can also get the FEN (Forsyth-Edwards Notation) and PGN (Portable Game Notation). These are available as links below the board on each game:

As with the RSS feeds the format of these links follow a similar format. So for game #1:

As the FEN represents a particular board position and game state it is quite handy as a format for quickly seeing the state of a game. As of such you can also view the FEN for previous moves in a game. Simply browse to the move and the FEN link will change so you can see the FEN for the game at that move.

PGN can obviously be used to import your game into a regular chess program such as Sigma Chess or XBoard. From there you can either carry on your game or analyse it.

In addition to RSS, PGN and FEN a link is provided to create a diagram of the current board using ChessUp. Using ChessUp you can create an image of the board to embed in a web-page.
