Online Circular Chess in Silverlight, ASP.NET AJAX, WCF Web Services, and LINQ to SQL

Introduction

A few months ago, a friend of mine mentioned Circular Chess to me, and I thought it looks really cool. However, I was unable to find any online Circular Chess game. Implementing such a game with standard HTML and JavaScript would not be possible because of the box model, and I am not familiar with Flash or Java Applets, so I wasn't able to implement the game. And, then I heard about Silverlight, and watched some demos, and thought to myself what a great platform it is for the implementation of Circular Chess.

In this article, I want to discuss the methods I used for creating an online game with ASP.NET AJAX 3.5 and WCF Web Services, and with the help of LINQ to SQL and, of course, Silverlight 1.1.
