To play Vote Chess simply go to the game you want to play while you are logged in and you will automatically be assigned to a team! You can join a game at any point during the game. Once you are assigned a team you can then make your move and submit it to the voting. Once time is up moves are tallied up and the move is made. You can discuss the entire game in the PUBLIC forum. It is OK to discuss opening lines found in game databases (including win/draw/loss statistics) and strategies for using opening databases in TEAM forums.
Additionally, in some games the other votes will be shown BEFORE you make a move, and in other games you will not see the other votes until AFTER you have moved.
