In Pottermore, users come across wizard chess in three different areas.  The first is the ability to collect it during the holiday feast in Chapter 12, the second is in the Chapter 13, and the third is as Harry is making his way through the under chambers in chapter 16.

The last is a major missed opportunity.  Several years ago (I’m not sure if it’s still around) but there used to be an computer game called “Battle Chess.”  This was Wizard Chess for human.  The different pieces fought as one captured the other.  Wouldn’t it be great if Pottermore established a partnership with that company or a similar company to enable online wizard battle chess.  Members could challenge each other and house points could be earned.

I really hope this is something that the people behind Pottermore are looking at for future version.  What do you think?
