    I don't like the graphics on the shockwave.com one....i much prefer birds eye view. I've got a long neck so when I play tournaments I can look over the board from more of a birds eye view than a side one. Plus I see the board in my mind from the top.

    I think so, but I don't have the most recent version. The movie preview is playing but nothing else will load.

    Edit: Let me try again. It appears my internet disconnected.

    I guess it is a no-go for me tonight. I'm having to download the shockwave plug -in for mozilla firefox and that is going to take an hour.
