Sensei no Goban - 先生の碁盤
Sensei no Goban is an online Go board that shows all of your movements; you don't have to drop the stone. It does not force you to use the rules of Go, so it is ideal for teaching games.
I wanted to recreate the feel of playing in person and watching the other person move their pieces, instead of simply seeing a piece pop into existence on the next turn. I was inspired by a demo that I played that used a similar concept albeit with physics and 3d, Wolfire Games' Desparate Gods.
