Re: CHESS is the best game invented ever.
agreed ;)

strategic war on a cupboard.

available nearly everywhere,
ease to create from junk,
helping your brain functionating and pushing diseases like dementia away.
teaching you to think,
to realize there´s many solutions to one problem,
how to find solutions in desperate solutions,
and as well that one can´t always win.
love it.

Havent seen so many women chess players though,more a mens game? why? to do with the brains?banana2 only joking.
 Quoting: nightrunner


i haven´t seen so many either, but i know at least some.
don´t know why this is, but it seems chess is gone out of fashion a loooong time (ps3 & wii & other pc games "killed" it, as you can play with more people at same time i suppose).
It is not that popular among "mainstream people" i think; and as women are said to be not that good at strategic and logical thinking it doesn´t contribute to have more people play it either.
which is a pitty, as it would improve their skills in many ways..but it´s much easier to do "strategic shopping" and reading about celebrity news :/

actually, my grandpa was the first and only one who ever introduced chess to me - i was about 10yrs at that time.
i did not really understand this game and its purpose at that time, as well as i did not understand being somewhat privileged grandpa tried to interest me in chess.
he tried to teach me not only chess, but other things as well; as he did not teach the other relatives, he must have seen something different in me.

Would love to be able to play it with my grandpa once again :( but as he was dead for nearly a decade when i re-discovered it in my 20ies, it is and was not possible any more.

i am not good at it (yet), because i have no one to play with. friends/family not interested in that kind of game - and playing online or against a computer is not that much fun for me :(

edit:
i noticed some time ago, that our TV guides do not feature the little chess section any more. they had a situation of a game of chess printed and you had to figure out how to solve it.

Re: CHESS is the best game invented ever.
chess is a kabbalistic mind-trap, it fools you to make analogies to life from a game which is inherently limited and box like... plus, it's way different from the original game - the French dumbed it down in the 18th century, and later the addition of cronos(timing) to the game trained people to not just make analogies, but to hurry, sans emotion.
It's a trap, grab an axe...

Terrorist Chess

The Chess game is basically the same

other than, pawns can blown themselves up as a turn

they can only choose to do so when on a square of their own color

when pawns exploded they kill ALL PIECES (regardless of color)

I would suggest messing with the starting set formation of the pawn-line, as slight variations can have massive influence on how the game is played

It takes awhile to get used to, but it really makes a great variation of chess

chess doesn't require electricity though, so it will definitely still be playable after society crumbles

Indeed chess is the best game ever invented. Personally, I am a Benko Gambiteer. Nothing like giving up an extra pawn for a queen-side positional attack.

Thanks in advance!

I play chess at a NYC cafe in the Vilage. There I have met William Lombardy, an ex-priest who was Bobby Fischer's second when he played Spassky in Iceland in 1972, Bobby Fischer vs. Russian Machine Culture. Also have met,the best rapid player only to Nakamura, Mr. Yaacov Novowitz. He is on youtube beating several Grandmasters. I play online every day vs. players from Russia, Germany and the Asian nations.
It is THE best game to combat the "dumbing down" of our country. There are also many high schools which treach chess to after school minority students and they are really good players. charlie

I started getting back into chess just recently "hanging out at chess.com", but I was allured away with the thought of blowing stuff up while I strategically conquer. :D

There once was a USCF expert named Bates, who played as hard and strong as he could at chess. One day his title arrived in the mail, and to his horror he was now "Master Bates!"

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."
