    Want to play chess with me?
    I got back into it today. There’s an app and a website called www.Chess.com and it’s a really good chess site imo. If you have an account, feel free to PM me and I’ll give you my username! Low pressure games, I’ll put a 14 day turn timer on it so we can take our time.

    I'd love to do that as I love chess, but not at the moment.

    As soon as I best that monkey on Chessmaster, will I be ready.

    While on the subject of chess, I'm having a blast with Chess Ultra playing with the reaper.

    How cool is that?

    A knight is greeted by the grim reaper and informed of his demise. The knight, however, convinces death to play a game of chess with him. If he wins, he lives. If he loses, well...

    I could play you and would like to if you want to play me but I'm not very good at chess.

    I'm not sure I usually have the attention span to play Chess, to be honest. I'm more into something like Scrabble.

    Want me to look up an article on how to play and send them to you?
    I know how to play but it's hard explaining im sure someone's written a good article on how to play.

    I'm working on inventing a new & improved modern
    version of chess. No kings, queens, knights, etc.
    It has dictators, oligarchs, mistresses, reporters,
    spies, conscripts, tanks, planes, & civilians.

    I haven't played in decades.
    But when I did, I knew no strategy.
    We were just dumb kids figuring it out as we went along.

    BTW, once I discovered go, chess lost any appeal.

    Chessmaster, particularly Chessmaster 2 has an excellent virtual school.

    You'll be playing like a grandmaster in no time.

    Cool. Never played it but it looks good. When I was at uni if I wasn't boozing I was playing Mah Jong. A kong of dragons! Yay!

    It's a bigger game than chess.
    Like a war as opposed to a single battle.

    Of course, the best thing is that go boards
    & pieces are more fun to fondle.

    I've not played in many years.
    If I start up again, it'll be at the local club.
    Thanx for the offer though.

    I'd like to think you mean they are more tactile but I fear you do actually mean fondle. :)

    Maybe I'll try online before I get too heavy with it.

    Aye, fondle it is.
    The stones are enticing.
