Chess

Post by Visser 5 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 9:27 am

A real classic, and one of the oldest games anyone still plays any more.
I said ONE OF THE OLDEST, not THE OLDEST.

It's also one of the most successful multiplayer games of all time. I love chess, buy I rarely have anyone to play with.

I've played this game, but my daddy always beats me. I remember how when I was little I would always call it "chest" not "chess". I always thought that the knight was the best piece, cuz it could sneak up on the queen and she couldn't take him first.

I am terrible at this. I can obliterate everyone in my family at most games of intelligence but I have no long-term strategy. Stupid game. :P

I also called it 'chest' when I was little, much to the amusement of my parents. I didn't learn to play until I was 12, and I've only won one game since then (whether that's because I rarely ever play it or I'm just that bad at it, I'm not sure). After I first learned to play from a friend, my dad and I played one game every night for a few weeks. I never beat him, but I learned some valuable lessons in thinking things through. Admittedly, I'm not very good with strategy. I have trouble thinking multiple moves ahead, especially because I a.) don't play the game often b.) don't know what strategy my opponent is using and c.) have a short attention span.

i went drinking with some of my friends, we got kicked outta dis one place and moved to one of their cousin's house. we get there and they started playing chess. i never thought a bunch of drunk people would actually be pretty good. or maybe we weren't any good cuz i was as drunk as them

Drunk chess? Now that could be an olympic sport. And maybe another shot for every piece you lose. :thinking:

I suck at chess, but I like the game. I played my friend awhile back. I lost my queen in three turns. :P
