Version 9 step 4: chess positions on a world map.

New training option, externally a little different from the others.
It works with a world map divided into countries, where each country is associated with a chess position, the goal is to solve all the positions of all countries. You get a country when you win its position. Then you can select a border-country and so on.


Maybe in the future I will add more restrictive maps (Africa, America,....), extend the selection of positions, ....
