Thread: Do you play chess?

    Default Do you play chess?

    So lately I have found myself addicted to Chessmaster on my cellphone. I play it in the bathroom, I play at lunch, I play it when I should be working. Who wants some?

    This thread was originally about what I thought was an illegal move and I posted the thread and realized its a legal move called "en passant" and I didnt even know this. So the thread went from that to me challenging someone. go figure.

    I'm good. I beat a so-called expert 2 out of 3 times once. At my old work, I had a record of like 30-5 or something along those lines.

    Yeah, sometimes they can develop a mental block about playing an individual. Presumably you won the first game?

    Yeah I won the first, he won the second, so we decided to play a third, and I won that, and after that, I 'retired' on top.

    Good. I played at a reasonable level at college. I gave up eventually because it is one game I love, but won't play anymore, simply because I can't handle getting beat!

    I'm actually way better on a real board. For some reason, I always seem to make some mistakes on the computer if I play, which I know I would of caught and not have done on a real board. But I'll play ya....gotta get some practice in first though, it's been a while.

    I think the new PC versions of this game would kick most peoples asses. It's true you get lazy on them especially when you are allowed to take your move back and "pretend it never happened". However, if you do that too often the machine spots it and adjusts strategy immediately and simply beats you harder!

    I used to play quite a bit but I haven't renewed my USCF membership in a year or two. Life has been busy. But I'd suggest checking out http://www.gameknot.com/ to play. It's a nifty site and you can really learn a lot by playing on there.

    I love chess even though I suck at it most of the time. I have played games that have lasted for hours though and those are always the best ones.

    I would love to try that 3 player chess. I've seen those boards available before, but for like 80-100 bucks.
