I would suggest "text-mode" moves, and the board be placed in the first post and updated after each move, same idea like in aliquot reservation thread, etc. It does not make too much sense to overload the forum with photos after every move.
A small GIF or JPG of the board, in a new post, would certainly be fine after every move.

By the way, is there any mechanism to forbid a "super"mod (or an ... ultra-mod, xyzzy-mod, etc) to look in "the other's" forum?
An administrator can see all of the posts. We were careful to make sure the posts in the team forums were not indexed by the search engine! We will have to demote Serge to a pawn for the duration of the game, since super mods can see all posts.

…so that Brian-E or a super mod…
Brian-E had to be removed as this forum's moderator because a forum moderator can view all child forums. We will re-mod him after the game.

What we need is someone to manage the game in the chess forum thread. A super mod would work but we are also open to a different volunteer. This person needs to be trustworthy since they will be able to view both forums. They also need to visit pretty regularly and have a good handle on doing the graphics and move list.

BTW, Serge has been temporarily relieved of his duty as a super mod for the duration of the game. How he will survive without the DH forum is a mystery to us. It is all that, and more!

We almost forgot to mention that the main game thread will be "closed". In other words, only a picture will be posted of each move along with the move list.

Does that sound reasonable?

I believe* that the game is as inexhaustible as just a color.
Black. White. Gomoku. Go.

Translation: I've never said a word about chess, did I? Count me out.

How will moves be added? PMing the game moderator?

See?

Temporary loss of DH privileges or international fame in a chess match.

Hard choice!

The game moderator will be able to read the team forums so all the team has to do is declare a move official.
