    Help on chess game

    Im trying to make a chess game from scratch ( without AI ) and after a lot of
    googling and searching this site i couldnt find answers to some questions.

    1. I created three chessboards with three different technics:
    - one with if() and else() statements
    - one with switches
    - one with 2D array.

    Now is there a most prefered way to go of these three ways? I dont wanna lose a lot of time by choosing one just to find out later that i should have chosen the other one.

    2. That must be a stupid question but i prefer to clarify it for me: is there a technic to change something on the board after it was drawn or i have to redraw it after every move (talking about consol program)?

    Thanks in advance!
