Below, you will find Chess Tutor, an on-line PGN viewer. If you have a little patience while it's loading (but it only seems to work in Explorer), you can view the games in 16 gamefiles. Some of these files go with the stories on my site, others are supposed to be interesting in themselves. You can download these files in zipped form.
    Chess Tutor is pretty straightforward: choose a game in the large window, click it (once is enough) and when you're through with it, press the X to choose a new one, or a new PGN-file in the small window. The size of the board is adjustable.

A note on the format of the games.
As Chess Tutor needs long notation, that is how I put most games in the PGN-viewer. In the zipped download files however, they are in standard (short) PGN. Most chess databases and converting programs will be able to handle this, but with the FEN-notation (for positions and odds games); games of over 100 moves, and an occasional comment between {}, it might be different. You may have to check for these first, and perhaps edit a PGN-file before you can use it. They are simple text files, but be sure to save them as plain ASCII. Comments are always welcome.
