You can now setup illegal positions in Chessbase. Problem solved.

chesspub can set up the positions. I have done it in rtf as well, using a downloaded font. No way to move the pieces, but you could create a series of diagrams, save as pdf, and use the next page button.

Edited:
In quick testing, WinBoard 4.6.0 (and therefore Xboard) will allow to setup illegal positions (use Edit Position), save to fen, load from fen. When I get back from vacation I will post an awk script I wrote to output .rtf document from .fen file.

Software for chess teaching

Hi everyone.  I'm going to be doing a bit of teaching at a chess camp, and I'm looking for a piece of software that will allow me to set up and project illegal positions on a screen.  In particular, there are some positions with just knights and pawns, or just pawns, that can be useful for beginners who are just learning how pieces move.  Does anyone know of any software that will allow you to project illegal positions and make moves on the board as well?

Oh, and if you have favorite positions illustrating key themes, or short games that you know kids love, please feel free to share them.  I don't want to run out of material! Smiley
