Chess anyone?
« on: June 04, 2005, 02:39:24 pm »
I was wondering if anyone else here likes chess.

And technically chess is portable, you can play it outside.  :P

Ask and you shall find chess.

And I love chess.

I prefer good-ol'-fashioned boardgame-with-pieces chess. It's more personal.

I use to play chess all the time with my old flatmates.
I tried to teach my girlfriend how to play last week - she kind of understood

Back in my day (last year) I could castle a mean rook, but I'm sort of out of practice. I'll play somebody on Yahoo Games if they want.

I think you would be correct, most females are not interested in chess.  ;)

Computer opponents can be tough because computers work from numbers, which means, that they will never lose a piece, as long as they can help it.
